Malaysia Approves Pfizer COMIRNATY Booster Dose!

On 8 October 2021, the Malaysia Ministry of Health approved the use of a booster dose of the Pfizer COMIRNATY vaccine for adults 18 years and above, manufactured by :

  • Pfizer Manufacturing Belgium NV, Belgium, and
  • BioNTech Manufacturing GmbH, Germany

This would make Pfizer-BioNTech COMIRNATY the first COVID-19 vaccine to be approved as a booster dose in Malaysia.

 

When Will Malaysia Give Pfizer COMIRNATY Booster Dose?

The Pfizer COMIRNATY booster dose will only be given at least 6 months AFTER you receive your second dose.

The booster dose will initially be prioritised for these high-risk groups, followed by the rest of the adult population :

  • the elderly with co-morbidity
  • frontliners
  • people who are immunocompromised
  • those caring for the elderly

In addition, it will be offered to those who were earlier vaccinated with other COVID-19 vaccines – a concept known as heterologous vaccination, or colloquially as vaccine mixing.

The Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) aims to start administering the booster dose this month.
