The uptick in today’s cases is likely due to the increased social activities and interactions in the community following the easing of COVID-19 measures since 26 April, and more people seeking medical care after the recent long weekend. MOH will continue to monitor the situation closely. While our population is more resilient to COVID-19 with immunity from vaccinations and previous infections, everyone should continue to play their part to exercise social responsibility.

COVID-19

COVID-19 vaccination is safe and effective. It protects you and loved ones against the virus. You are also less likely to fall severely ill if you get infected.

Don’t hesitate! Get your vaccination today. It is easy and hassle-free.

Walk-In for Primary and Booster Vaccination

From 17 March 2022, all individuals regardless of age, who are eligible for COVID-19 vaccination, are able to walk in for their primary vaccination series and booster doses, without prior appointment, every day of the week, before 7pm:

• Children aged 5 to 11 can walk in with their parents/guardians to any paediatric vaccination centre (VC) to receive their vaccination doses.

• Individuals aged 12 to 17 may now walk in to any VC offering the Pfizer-BioNTech/Comirnaty vaccine to receive their primary vaccination series and booster dose.

• Individuals aged 18 and above may walk into any VC offering mRNA vaccines to receive their primary vaccination series and booster dose.

Vaccine Booster Programme

To maintain the high level of vaccine protection, we have rolled out the vaccine booster programme for persons aged 12 and above.

Persons 12 and above who have completed their primary vaccination series and are eligible for booster vaccination will be considered as fully vaccinated for 270 days after the last dose in their primary vaccination series.
