Hello and good afternoon. Thank you for your question.

For you information, you will be able to take your booster dose once you have tested negative and have recovered from all COVID-19 symptoms (asymptomatic status). This would vary for each individual ranging from few weeks to few months.

My best advice would be to contact the nearest vaccination centre (PPV) or any nearby health clinics (klinik kesihatan) that offers the vaccine for further advice regarding your situation or for the procedures you have to follow before getting your booster shot.

Do take note that this is only a rough explanation from us regarding your situation. In order for us to provide you with accurate advice, we would need to explore further and evaluate your condition before giving a final decision. I strongly encourage you to consult the nearest PPV or health clinic as mentioned before. You may also contact our doctors online for further information and management.

I hope this answer helps you. Thank you.
