COVID-19 Vaccine Boosters and Third Shots

Malaysia has now joined a handful of countries around the world that have begun giving out another round of vaccinations for people who have been fully vaccinated, and this began in Sarawak a little over a week ago.

Here to answer those questions and more is Dr Yasmin Gani, infectious disease physician from Hospital Sungai Buloh.
