Hello and thank you for using our services

I understand that you have thalassemia, anemic and occasionally dizzy and breathlessness and worried about getting the AstraZeneca vaccine.

For your information, the COVID-19 vaccines are not contraindicated for people with thalassemia who meet the eligibility criteria.

However, it is better that you get further confirmation from a doctor or specialist at a nearby clinic or hospital, as well as report to the medical officer at your Vaccination Center.

I strongly suggest for you to talk to our doctor via teleconsultation to get a proper opinion on this matter.

I hope I managed to assist you in this matter. If you have any other enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you
