The Ministry of Health (MOH) has just shared data on getting a booster jab for protection against the virus in relation to the incidence of death caused by contracting the virus compared to those who are not fully vaccinated or those without a booster shot.

It also reiterates that the best protection that we as individuals can give to our families and loved ones amidst the current surge of cases is to take up the booster jab.

In an infographic provided by MOH, it shows the amount of people in percentage of different ages groups and their vaccinations statuses who succumbed to the virus from 1 May 2021 to 31 Jan 2022.
