Protecting The Immunocompromised In The Pandemic

People who have diseases or treatments that suppress their immune system have been living in fear during this pandemic. Not only are they more vulnerable to severe COVID-19 infection, they also do not have the same level of protection that other vaccinated people have. We speak to Prof Dr Sargunan Sockalingam, Head of Rheumatology at University Malaya Medical Centre, to understand how we can better protect people who are immunocompromised.
