Second Booster Shot For The Vulnerable Elderly

The Ministry of Health will administer a second vaccine booster shot for senior citizens with comorbidities to counter waning immunity levels for those most vulnerable to Covid-19 infections. We discuss the rationale for the move as well as other pandemic developments in the country with Dr. Vinod Balasubramniam of the Jeffrey Cheah School of Medicine & Health Sciences.
