Health DG: No myocarditis and pericarditis cases linked to use of mRNA Covid-19 vaccines in Malaysia


PETALING JAYA: Malaysia has had no cases of myocarditis and pericarditis associated with the use of Covid-19 mRNA vaccine, says the Health Ministry amid reports of such illnesses happening in the United States, United Kingdom and Singapore recently.

Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah (pic) stressed that the current benefits of receiving the vaccine far outweigh the risks, and that the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine - the only mRNA vaccine type used in Malaysia - will continue to be administered.
