PETALING JAYA: Unlike adults, children will not be subjected to restrictions if they are not vaccinated, says Khairy Jamaluddin.

The Health Minister, however, urged parents to register their children aged five to 11 for the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme for children on the MySejahtera app.

“Children will not be restricted if they are not vaccinated, unlike unvaccinated adults,” he tweeted on Tuesday (Jan 25).

On Jan 20, Khairy announced that the Covid-19 vaccination programme for children aged five to 11 would begin on Feb 3.

He had said that parents can book appointment slots via MySejahtera beginning Jan 31 and the process will be carried out in phases, starting with the Klang Valley.

The programme will utilise a special vaccine formulation by Pfizer for children and it will be a two-dose regime with an eight-week interval between jabs.

Each dose will be 0.2ml and contains 10 micrograms of mRNA vaccine, which is one-third of what is given to adults.
