To ask the Minister for Health what is the Ministry’s assessment of the recommendation by the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention made on 13 August 2021 that people who are moderately to severely immunocompromised should receive an additional dose of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine after the initial two doses.
As the Member is aware, MOH has agreed with the EC19V’s recommendation to administer a third dose of COVID-19 vaccines to individuals who are immunocompromised.
