Malaysia Updates National Immunisation Schedule with 6-in-1 Vaccine

Starting this month, children in Malaysia will receive a 6-in-1 vaccine, which covers diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, Haemophilus influenzae type b, and Hepatitis B. This will replace the previous 5-in-1 vaccine. We get an update on why this change was made, and address some health concerns that parents have about the new vaccine.

If you have any queries about the change in the immunisation schedule, you can call the Ministry of Health at 03-8883 4042/ 03-8883 4504. You can also visit the nearest public health clinic (Klinik Kesihatan) to find out more.
