Doctor in the House: A New Vaccine For Dengue Approved!

With dengue continuing to be a threat to the Malaysian population, will a vaccine be the game changer that we need? What do we know about the safety of this vaccine and will we face challenges with vaccine hesitancy this time around? Consultant urologist Dr George Lee is joined by Dr Ravindran Thayan, Head of the Virology Unit at the Institute of Medical Research to find out more.
