Doctor in the House: The Ongoing Battle To Build Trust in COVID-19 Vaccines

With certain COVID-19 vaccine candidates hitting hurdles before they’re even introduced into Malaysia’s National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme, it’s become clear that building trust in COVID-19 vaccines is not a sprint but a marathon. We take a look at what it will take for us to maintain and increase the level of vaccine confidence, if we are to achieve herd immunity by February 2022, with consultant urologist Dr George Lee, pharmacist & public health researcher Mark Cheong, and consultant geriatrician Prof Dr Tan Maw Pin.
