Malaysia's Covid-19 vaccine doses administered up at 322,346 on Sept 9

KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 10): Malaysia's daily number of Covid-19 vaccine doses administered rose to 322,346 yesterday (Sept 9) from 320,452 on Wednesday (Sept 8), bringing the nation’s cumulative shots given to recipients to about 37.71 million so far, according to the latest updates on Facebook today by the country's Special Committee for Ensuring Access to Covid-19 Vaccine Supply (JKJAV), citing data from the Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF).

The CITF said the 322,346 doses administered yesterday involved 133,861 persons who received their first shot and 188,485 individuals who were fully vaccinated.

Meanwhile, the CITF added that the cumulative 37.71 million doses given involved about 21.08 million people or 64.5% of Malaysia’s population who had received at least one jab, including around 16.68 million persons or 51.1% of the population who were fully vaccinated.

According to the CITF, the fully vaccinated category represents the number of individuals who have received the second jab of the two-dose vaccination or one dose of the single-shot CanSino Covid-19 vaccine.

Malaysia's Covid-19 vaccination scheme started on Feb 24 this year, with then prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin taking the first jab.

Based on the government's target of having 80% of the country's population of about 33 million people fully vaccinated to achieve herd immunity, the nation will need to have about 26 million individuals fully inoculated against the pandemic.
