The COVID vaccine is now available in Malaysia, and it has been hailed as the best-ever vaccine delivery system in the world.
The first phase of the COV-19 vaccination is currently being administered to some 1.6 million people in the country, and the first batch of doses have been sent to a further 7 million people.
Malaysia’s government said it will start vaccinating all people living in the city of Bukit Timah, where the coronavirus outbreak started in April.
This will start at the end of the year, with a target of hitting 10 million people by the end at the earliest.
Malaysia has been a leader in the international COVID vaccination effort, with the first phase being delivered in October, with an estimated 8.4 million doses being administered across the country.
This will be followed by an additional phase of vaccinations in 2020.
This is followed by a phase 3 vaccination in 2021.
The phase 3 vaccines are now being delivered to over 10 million Malaysians.
It is also estimated that in 2021, the vaccine will reach 6 million people, with more vaccines expected in the future.
The government has said that the COVR vaccine is not 100 per cent effective, as it is still in early stages of development, and there are still a number of challenges.
“The COVR vaccines is not a perfect vaccine,” Health Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi told reporters at a press conference.
“However, it is far superior to any other vaccine, and we are confident that it will be fully effective in preventing the coronivirus spread.”
According to Malaysian media, the final phase of COVID vaccines has already been delivered to more than 10 million, and health officials have said that it is estimated that the total number of people vaccinated will reach 10 million by 2021.
The government is also planning to vaccinate about 1 million people with COVRs by 2020, and will start administering COVR-N in 2022.
At the end-of-year press conference, the minister said that he is optimistic that the vaccine is likely to be effective.
He said that if all goes well, Malay people will receive about 10 million doses of COVRN, with those vaccinated to receive an average of about 2,500 doses per person.
There will also be a phase 5 phase 3 vaccine in 2021 which will be administered to more people in Bukit Samah, but it is not yet known how many people will be vaccinated.
A total of 8.5 million doses have already been distributed, and Malay media has said the total amount of COV vaccines delivered to the country is around 9 million.
