Find out this means for the COVID-19 vaccination program in Malaysia!
Malaysia Approves Sinopharm + Janssen COVID-19 Vaccines!
On 16 July 2021, the Malaysia Ministry of Health announced that the Drug Control Authority (DCA) issued a conditional registration for the following vaccines :
COVILO Suspension for Injection COVID-19 Vaccine (Vero Cell), Inactivated
Registrant : Duopharma (M) Sdn. Bhd.
Manufacturer : Beijing Institute of Biological Products Co. Ltd. (BIBP), China
COVILO is also known as Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine, and was developed by China National Biotec Group Company Limited (CNBG), also known as Sinopharm
Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine Suspension for Injection Registrant : Johnson & Johnson Sdn. Bhd.
Manufacturer : Janssen Pharmaceutica N.V., Belgium
Even so, many people are demanding the right to pick and choose their COVID-19 vaccine. Some are demanding the right to pay for what they believe are the ‘superior’ vaccine.
But guess what…
The BEST vaccine you can take is the FIRST vaccine you can get, and COMPLETE.
Here are the reasons why…
Reason #1 : Early Protection Offers The Best Protection
Think of the COVID-19 pandemic as an alien invasion, and the vaccine as body armour that protects you against their attacks.
When you are under attack, do you put on the first body armour you find, or do you wait until you find the body armour you like the best?
Cpl. Daniel M. Greenwald survived this sniper shot thanks to his helmet!
The fact is – even “substandard” body armour will offer you FAR MORE protection than no body armour at all!
After all, you could end up getting killed by COVID-19, before your preferred body armour arrives. What’s the point of getting the vaccine you want if you are already infected or dead?
Don’t believe us? A team of scientists actually did a study on this, concluding that “waiting for a vaccine with a higher efficacy results in additional hospitalizations and costs over the course of the pandemic“.
Reason #2 : All Approved Vaccines Protect You Against Severe Disease + Death
Regulatory bodies around the world set a minimum threshold of 50% efficacy against symptomatic infection for the approval of any COVID-19 vaccine.
However, that has confused people into thinking that the authorities are taking shortcuts in giving us vaccines that barely work.
Come on – 50% efficacy? That’s like rolling the dice at the roulette table, right? That’s really NOT the case.
We prepared this table to show you how misleading efficacy rates are.
