About Singapore's COVID-19 Vaccination Programme

The COVID-19 vaccination programme protects Singaporeans against COVID-19, as well as businesses and jobs through the progressive re-opening of Singapore.

Vaccination is free for all Singaporeans and long-term residents in Singapore.

The risk of serious, life-threatening disease, and even death from COVID-19 infection – especially in the elderly and other vulnerable groups (e.g. pregnant women, persons with comorbidities) – is high.

Getting vaccinated is a simple and effective way to prevent the disease, minimise the risk of transmission, and protect our healthcare system from being overwhelmed.

COVID-19 Vaccines Available under National Vaccination Programme

  • Pfizer-BioNTech/COMIRNATY

  • Moderna/Spikevax*

  • Nuvaxovid

  • Sinovac-CoronaVac

*Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are now labelled "Spikevax". From 11 Feb 2022, MOH will adjust the HealthHub records of individuals who had previously received or will be receiving the Moderna or Spikevax vaccine to administratively reflect the vaccine received under a category called “Moderna/Spikevax”.

Vaccine Booster Programme

Who is eligible?

Persons aged 12 and above who have received completed their primary vaccination series.

How to get boosted?

All eligible individuals can walk in to any vaccination centre for their vaccination, including  booster doses without the need for an appointment at anytime of the week, before 7pm:

  • Those aged 12-17 can walk in to any VC offering the Pfizer-BioNTech/Comirnaty vaccine, and bring along a duly competed and signed hard or electronic copy of the parental consent form, which can be downloaded here.

  • Eligible individuals aged 18 and above can also walk in to any VC for their vaccination or book an appointment via the personalised link send to their SMS.

  • Parents/guardians of individuals aged 12-17 will also receive the SMS notification, to provide consent and book their child/ward’s booster vaccination appointment.

Which booster to take?

Individuals aged 12-17 will be offered the Pfizer-BioNTech/ Comirnaty vaccine for booster dose.

For individuals aged 18 and above, you may choose either the Pfizer-BioNTech/COMIRNATY, Moderna/Spikevax, or Nuvaxovid vaccine. You do not need to receive the same vaccine you had received for your previous 2 doses.

When should I get boosted?

You will be eligible for your booster dose 5 months after the last dose of your primary vaccination series.

If you had received the Sinovac-CoronaVac or Sinopharm vaccine as your third dose as part of a three-dose primary vaccination series, you can get boosted with either a mRNA vaccine or the Nuvaxovid vaccine from three months after your third dose.

Persons aged 12 and above who have completed the 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.

Top Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q1: Will the booster dose affect my vaccination status?

Yes, to maintain your “fully vaccinated” status, you should receive your booster dose no later than 270 days after the last dose in the primary vaccination series.

If your vaccination status is not accurately reflected, you may raise your query at https://go.gov.sg/vds-query-form.

Q2: Is a third dose safe?

Yes, the Expert Committee on COVID-19 Vaccination (EC19V) has assessed that the benefits of another dose of the vaccine outweigh the risks for the recommended groups. There is now good international data that a booster dose of the vaccine is safe, enhances protection against COVID-19 infection and ensures continued excellent protection against severe disease.

Most side effects are mild or moderate, and usually get better within a few days.  As with all vaccines and medications, there is a small risk of serious adverse events. Countries which have been providing booster doses have not reported any safety concerns.

Q3: Can pregnant or breastfeeding women receive the mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccine?

Internationally, a large number of pregnant and breastfeeding women have received a COVID-19 vaccination.  The Expert Committee on COVID-19 Vaccination (EC19V) has examined studies done to monitor women who were vaccinated when they were pregnant, and their babies. These studies were done on women at different trimesters of pregnancy and  there is no evidence to suggest that the Pfizer-BioNTech/ Comirnaty or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine may cause harm to pregnant women or their babies.

Both Pfizer-BioNTech/ Comirnaty and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are mRNA vaccines. As mRNA vaccines are not live vaccines, they are biologically unlikely to adversely affect breastfed babies. In addition, the breast milk of vaccinated mothers may help to protect their babies from COVID-19 due to antibodies in breast milk. There have also been no vaccine-related side effects reported in the babies who were breastfed by mothers who received the vaccine while breastfeeding.

Q4: If I received two doses of Sinovac/Sinopharm, is it still recommended for me to receive the third dose?

You are recommended to receive three doses of the Sinovac-CoronaVac COVID-19 vaccine as your primary vaccination series. It is recommended that the third dose be administered three months after the second dose.

Persons aged who are medically ineligible to complete the primary vaccination series with the mRNA vaccines or Nuvaxovid vaccine are recommended to receive the Sinovac-CoronaVac vaccine. These persons should receive 3 doses of vaccines (inclusive of the mRNA vaccines or Nuvaxovid vaccine) to complete their primary vaccination series.
