Mr Dennis Tan Lip Fong asked the Minister for Health (a) whether he can provide an update on the Ministry’s assessment of the Novavax vaccine; (b) whether the Ministry has found any data to support or reject its use for children below the age of 12; and (c) how will the Ministry encourage people who are sceptical about mRNA technology to take the Novavax vaccine if it is approved.
Mr Ong Ye Kung: This question will be answered in my reply to Mr Gerald Giam and Mr Yip Hon Weng in the next sitting. [Please refer to “Assessment of Use of Non-mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines in Wider Population”, Official Report, 15 February 2022, Vol 95, Issue 48, Oral Answers to Questions section.]
