There are cases of empty syringe in Malaysia. So to avoid yourself from getting empty or partial dose of vaccine, here’s the step to follow:
Check the label of the vial or prepared syringe, to confirm the vaccine you are receiving. Here in Malaysia, that’s Pfizer, AstraZeneca or Sinovac.
The doctor or nurse will show you the syringe, for you to verify that it has the correct volume.
|Pfizer COMIRNATY||0.3 ml|
|AstraZeneca Vaxzevria||0.5 ml|
|Sinovac CoronaVac||0.5 ml|
Ask that you be allowed to record a video of the vaccination process.
After receiving the injection, the doctor or nurse will show you the syringe, for you to confirm that it is empty.
Before leaving the vaccination booth, go through the video to confirm that you received the dose.
If there is any discrepancy, you can address it with the doctor or nurse, or ask to see a supervisor.
