Vaccine Booster Programme

To maintain the high level of vaccine protection, we have rolled out the vaccine booster programme for Seniors, Residents of Aged Care Facilities, and Immunopromised persons.

Seniors aged 60 years and above, who have received both doses at least 6 months ago, may walk into any vaccination centre, polyclinic, or participating GP to receive their booster dose of a mRNA vaccine.

From 9 Oct, persons aged 30 and above, who have received both doses at least 6 months ago, will also be progressively invited to receive their booster dose. They will receive an SMS with a personalised booking link to book their booster dose at vaccine.gov.sg. 

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.

Find out more here.

Seniors 60 years old and above

Walk in to any Vaccination Centre, Polyclinic or participating PHPC for your first dose. Or visit our mobile vaccination teams. No registration or appointments required.

Where to get vaccinated
Why Seniors should be vaccinated 

Singapore Residents aged 12 to 59

All Singaporeans, Permanent Residents, and Long-Term Pass holders aged 12 and above who have not had your first dose may walk in to the vaccination centres, polyclinics and participating PHPCs without any appointment to get vaccinated.

Children aged 12-17 will only be administered the Pfizer-BioNTech/ Comirnaty vaccine. Click here for more information. For walk-in, children/wards below the age of 18 will require the consent of their parents/guardians for their vaccination. Remember to bring along the consent form, you may use this.

If you prefer, you may still register and receive an SMS to book your vaccination appointments. Register for vaccination now.

Eligible Short-Term Pass Holders

From 18 August, all age-eligible Training Employment Pass (TEP), Training Work Permit (TWP), Work Holiday Pass (WHP), and Special Pass holders may walk in to the vaccination centres, without any appointment to get vaccinated.

Eligilble Short-Term Visit Pass (STVP) holders who have valid telephone numbers registered with the Government will receive an SMS from MOH (progressively from 19 August) with a link to book their appointments. Walk-ins are not allowed. 

STVPs with valid pass extensions who do not receive the SMS by 22 Aug may submit supporting documents and request an appointment using this form.

Vaccination Channels for Overseas Singaporeans

Singapore has launched two dedicated vaccination channels to make it more convenient for Singapore Citizens based overseas to receive vaccination in Singapore. Find out more here.

Fake News

We are aware that certain local websites such as “Truth Warriors” have been posting unverified and potentially misleading information on COVID-19 and vaccines.

COVID-19 vaccines approved for use in Singapore have been assessed to be safe and effective by both the HSA and the Expert Committee on COVID-19 Vaccination.

The Truth Warriors website has also been carrying articles claiming that Ivermectin is safe and effective in treating COVID-19, and that various other countries have been using the drug for early treatment of COVID-19 with high success rates.

In Singapore, Ivermectin is a prescription-only medicine registered only for the treatment of parasitic worm infections. It is not an anti-viral medicine and is not approved by HSA for use in the prevention or treatment of COVID-19. To date, there is no scientific evidence from properly conducted clinical trials to demonstrate that Ivermectin is effective against COVID-19.

Self-medicating with Ivermectin can be dangerous to one’s health, and there have been reports of patients requiring hospitalisation after doing so. Side effects can include vomiting, stomach pain, seizures, severe skin rash and liver injury etc. We strongly advise members of the public not to self-medicate with Ivermectin and to consult their doctor for proper treatment of COVID-19.
