Doctor in the House: On Vaccinating Teens and Real-World Efficacy of COVID Vaccines

With COVID-19 vaccinations for adolescents aged between 12 to 17 years old underway, we take a look at what concerns parents might still have and some of the misinformation that is going around. We also discuss the planned roll-out of third doses for high-risk groups, as well as what the latest studies tell us about the real-world efficacy of the vaccines that have been used in Malaysia, especially as COVID-19 cases remain relatively high while we inch towards normalcy.
