Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine Approved For Children In Malaysia!
On 15 June 2021, the Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) announced that the National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Agency (NPRA) approved the use of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine in children 12 years and above.
You may recall that the Pfizer COMIRNATY vaccine was first approved for use in adults 18 years and above on 8 January 2021.
With this approval, children aged 12 years and above will soon be able to sign up for the COVID-19 vaccination programme.
However, KKM expressed their view that the COVID-19 vaccines should be prioritised towards the high-risk groups – like senior citizens with co-morbidities.
Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine : A Quick Primer
The Pfizer COMIRNATY vaccine (BNT162b2) is an mRNA-based vaccine designed by BioNTech.
Unlike more traditional methods of using dead particles, or attenuated viruses, the mRNA vaccine teaches your cells to create proteins that mimic the SARS-CoV-2 virus, thereby triggering an immune response.
