12 Jul 2021 Vaccine An Effective ‘Public Health Intervention Tool’ Against COVID-19

Malaysia should take a risk-based approach in the implementation of the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme as it ramps up its vaccination drive, according to public health expert, Datuk Dr Lokman Hakim Sulaiman. Dr Lokman who is the professor of public health and Pro Vice Chancellor at the International Medical University, Kuala Lumpur, said to maximise the impact of the nation’s current vaccine supply, vaccination of the elderly population and people with comorbidities must be expedited. He said the vaccination drive should also zoom in on densely populated urban areas with a high level of economic activities, said Dr Lokman Hakim, who is also a member of the WHO Advisory Group for Pandemic Influenza Preparedness Programme.
