Is there a vaccine for dengue in Malaysia?
Malaysia alone recorded more than 82,000 dengue cases and 171 dengue-related deaths in 2017. Despite the prevalence of dengue, there is still no effective vaccine against it. This is mostly because the dengue virus has four serotypes — DEN-1, DEN-2, DEN-3 and DEN-4.
