Malaysia to study data from Sinovac clinical trial before approving vaccine -minister

KUALA LUMPUR (MALAYSIA) – Malaysia, which is in talks for supplies of a COVID-19 vaccine with China’s Sinovac Biotech, will only proceed with procurement if the safety and efficacy standards of local regulators are met, a minister said on Wednesday.

Malaysia will first review Sinovac’s clinical data before deciding, Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said on Twitter, after Brazilian clinical trials found the efficacy of Sinovac’s vaccine to be well below the rate announced previously.
