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.

As of 25 November 2021, 85% of our population has completed their full regimen/ received two doses of COVID-19 vaccines, 86% has received at least one dose, and 24% has received boosters. So don’t hesitate. Get your vaccination today. It is easy and hassle-free.

Vaccine Booster Programme

To maintain the high level of vaccine protection, we have rolled out the vaccine booster programme for the following groups that have received both doses from about 5 months ago:
- Persons aged 30 and above; and
- Healthcare and frontline workers aged 18 and above.

You may walk into any of the 9 vaccination centres offering the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, without a prior appointment.

You do not need to choose the same mRNA vaccine you took for the previous two doses; you may choose either the Pfizer-BioNTech/COMIRNATY or the Moderna vaccine.

Persons who are moderately to severely immunocompromised are recommended to receive a 3rd dose of the PSAR mRNA vaccine 2 months after their second dose.

Fake News

MOH is aware of a Facebook post by Mr Goh Meng Seng, who noted that MOH had sponsored a study on the efficacy of Lianhua Qingwen in treating mild COVID-19 infections, which was supposed to run from July 2020 to February 2021, and asked why the findings of that study have not been published yet.

Mr Goh Meng Seng’s post is incorrect. MOH had indeed offered to sponsor the study mentioned by Mr Goh Meng Seng, under a TCM research grant. However, the Principal Investigator for the study later withdrew her application. She cited inability to secure a suitable study site as the reason for the withdrawal.  

To date, a few randomised control clinical trials (RCTs) on Lianhua Qingwen have been conducted, only in China. The numbers of patients in these RCTs were not large enough, as such there is no conclusive scientific evidence to show Lianhua Qingwen can be used to prevent or treat COVID-19 in Singapore.

From 22 Nov 2021, the permissible group size for social gatherings and household visitors will increase to 5 persons. Unvaccinated persons should exercise caution, reduce movement, and stay at home as much as possible.

Persons of all ages who are eligible to receive the Sinovac-CoronaVac vaccine are recommended to receive three doses of the vaccine as their primary vaccination series. The second dose should be taken 28 days after the first dose, while the third dose should be taken 90 days after the second dose.

Details here

From 24 Nov 2021, all Singaporeans, PRs, LT Pass Holders aged 30 years and above who have completed their primary series 5 months ago will be able to receive their booster doses. They may walk into any of the 9 vaccination centres offering the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, without a prior appointment.
