The vaccine rollout has kicked off in many countries as the world scrambles to recover from the pandemic. There are also some vaccines available for vaccination drives, and many countries have made a choice of one, two, or multiple versions and are using them for vaccination of their populations. As the vaccines differ in formulation and associated effects, it’s no wonder people worldwide are interested in which of the multiple vaccines available will be available for them to get vaccinated with. If you live in Malaysia or intend to get vaccinated there, you wonder which of the vaccines the country is choosing to vaccinate with. Below we will look at the various vaccines that are being used for vaccination in Malaysia and the vaccination process.

What Vaccines Have Been Approved For Use In Malaysia?

As far as the most recent information on the subject goes, the vaccines currently approved for use in Malaysia are the Pfizer vaccine(one of the more popular vaccine choices among countries) and the Sinovac Vaccine.

What Should You Know About The Pfizer Vaccine Used In Malaysia’s Vaccination Campaign?

The Pfizer vaccine was developed by a cooperative effort between the US drug company Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech. This vaccine is specifically recommended for people aged 16 years and older and is usually given in the upper arm muscle, and the usual dosage is two shots given at intervals 21 days apart. The Pfizer vaccine during clinical trials was reported to have been 95% effective at preventing symptomatic Covid and 100% effective at preventing similar cases. These are pretty good numbers that allow for confidence in their use and helps explain why many countries, Malaysia included, have made it part of their vaccination campaigns.

Any Possible Side Effects Of The Pfizer Vaccine?

The side effects are primarily non-serious and clear up in a short while. These include pain in the injection arm, fever, nausea, chills, headaches, tiredness. While these are not something to worry about, if you notice side effects that worry you, let the relevant personnel or your physician know about it. What do you need to know about the Sinovac Vaccine being used in Malaysia’s vaccination campaign? Malaysia kicked off its use of the Sinovac vaccine on March 18, three weeks after it started with the Pfizer vaccine. The Country’s Science, Technology, and Innovation Minister Khairy Jamaluddin were the first Malaysian to get a dose of the Sinovac vaccine.

Properly known as the CoronaVac, the Vaccine is developed by China’s Sinovac Biotech. It uses killed viral particles(a common approach to vaccine production) to trigger antibody formation against the virus. While the efficacy rate is not as high as that reported for the Pfizer vaccine, it is still being adopted by an increasing number of countries. The vaccine is also being reported to be effective and safe in younger demographics such as children. Albeit, further data is still being collected on this. What else should you know about Malaysia’s vaccination process? The Malaysian government has announced that it has set up a 2.4 million US dollars compensation fund for those who may have severe side effects due to the Covid vaccinations.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
