“For now, we still don’t know the effectiveness of the vaccine as the data from the third phase of the clinical trials has yet to be published.

“Once we get the data, only then we can consider using it and so far we have only heard about its effectiveness through media reports,” he said in the daily Covid-19 media briefing here today.

Dr Noor Hisham said so far, the available Covid-19 vaccine have not yet been registered with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
