Doctor in the House: COVID-19 Jabs for 5-11 Year-Olds

Parents can now register their kids aged 5-11 on MySejahtera for the COVID-19 vaccination, which will be rolled out in February. But many parents are worried about the safety of administering the Pfizer mRNA vaccine among children so young, and whether it’s necessary to subject them to any potential risks and side effects. Consultant paediatrician Dr Rakhee Yadav joins Dr George Lee to answer questions about vaccinating young children against COVID-19.
