17 Oct 2021

Update to Safe Management Measures from 27 September 2021

The Multi-Ministry Taskforce had announced that Singapore will scale back social interactions from 27 September through 24 October 2021, so as to slow down community transmissions, and allow for better stability.

The measures will be reviewed 2 weeks after, and may be adjusted based on the community situation then. Read the details here.

Booster dose of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine for those aged 50 to 59 years old

The Expert Committee on COVID-19 Vaccination (EC19V) has been closely reviewing the data regarding the need for additional vaccine dose, and recommends that persons aged between 50 and 59 years should receive a booster dose of a Pandemic Special Access Route (PSAR) mRNA vaccine from six months after the completion of vaccination with two doses.

Adults aged 50-59 years have a higher risk of severe disease compared to younger persons, and the current levels of protection could decrease over time. Therefore, persons between 50 and 59 years of age are now also recommended to receive a booster dose of a PSAR mRNA vaccine from six months after their primary vaccine course to maintain a high level of protection against severe disease.

Volunteer doctors and nurses needed for Home Vaccination Teams. Register and help more seniors get vaccinated sooner.

Vaccination reduces the severity of illness and vaccinated people clear the viruses and recover faster. Home Vaccination Teams (HVT) have been getting more seniors vaccinated.

If you are a doctor or nurse keen to support HVT, register with the SG Healthcare Corps at shc@moh.gov.sg or call 6325-9220.

We must protect as many as we can. Everyone can help!
