MALAYSIA’S path towards creating its own Covid-19 vaccines deserves praise and commendation, but it is important to note that the journey of formulating vaccines can be extremely complex.
Osel Group medical director, chief clinical and innovative scientist Datuk Seri Dr Kris See said developing a homegrown vaccine is not just about human capital, but also requires cooperation across many fields.
He added that Malaysia is certainly not short of talent for vaccine development, and the country possesses the expertise and skills needed in research and development (R&D).
