PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia will shorten the dosing interval for AstraZeneca vaccine recipients to nine weeks from 12 weeks, says Khairy Jamaluddin.

The National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme coordinating minister said this was the recommendation made to the Special Committee on Covid-19 Vaccine Supply (JKJAV) by its technical working group.

“Those who participated in the first round of AstraZeneca (opt-in programme) will be notified of their appointment soon,” said Khairy in a Twitter post on Thursday (July 1).
