The trials’ announcement is in line with the phase 3 Covid-19 vaccine clinical trial held at nine MOH hospitals by their respective Clinical Research Centres (CRC) set to involve 3,000 volunteers.

Malaysia is also the first country outside China to conduct the inactivated Covid-19 vaccine trial developed by the Institute of Medical Biology Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, China (IMBCAMS).

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, trials are open to healthy adults aged 18 and above, with the potential takeaway of gaining immunity towards Covid-19.

They have also included the list of hospitals you can connect with if you are interested in becoming a volunteer.

Among the hospitals mentioned in the list are CRC Hospital Sungai Buloh, CRC Hospital Ampang, CRC Hospital Raja Permaisuri Bainun, CRC Hospital Taiping, CRC Hospital Pulau Pinang, CRC Hospital Seberang Jaya, CRC Hospital Sultanah Bahiyah, CRC Hospital Sultan Abdul Hali and CRC Hospital Sarawak Umum.

Volunteering will not only allow vaccines to be quickly approved for use by the Ministry but should also be seen as the key to turn our fortunes around.
