PETALING JAYA: Many frontliners have been infected with Covid-19 even after completing their vaccination doses.

Health director-general Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said 31 of them were infected less than 14 days after receiving the second dose, while nine contracted the virus more than two weeks later. Another 142 health workers were infected after the first dose of the vaccine, before their second shot.

“ It is clear that we still can be infected after the completion of vaccination but perhaps with less severity.

“Although the vaccine gives a glimmer of hope in the fight against Covid-19, make no mistake, we can’t relax all public health measures after vaccination,” Dr Noor said in his Facebook today
