Nov 13, 2021


vaccine effectiveness drops after time

Completing two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine is effective to strengthen our immunity against the coronavirus.

However, studies have shown that immunity levels will dip after around five months of getting the injection.

According to the Institute of Clinical Research, the effectiveness of the Pfizer jab dropped to 68%, while Sinovac dropped to some 28%.

Because of this, the Health Ministry wants more Malaysians to take their booster shots.
