People who have received one jab of the COVID-19 vaccine and were later infected will have to wait 90 days before they can get their second jab. This is according to an advisory issued by the Ministry of Health.
Studies carried out in England and published in the medical journal the Lancet show that a single dose of AstraZeneca is 65 percent effective in stopping severe disease, hospitalization or death.
The health ministry says that evidence shows that recovered COVID-19 patients do not need to get vaccinated as fast as other groups because they develop natural immunity in the form of antibodies.
