Should Malaysia Vaccinate Our Children Against Covid-19?

As several countries (US, UK and Singapore) have approved the use of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for teenagers aged between 12 to 15, we ask Emeritus Prof PT Thomas, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences from Taylor’s University whether this should be a strategy in Malaysia. We also ask him if vaccine hesitancy will become a major issue when it comes to vaccinating children.
