Get Tested

You could be infected even if you do not have symptoms. Be certain by getting tested, especially if you have come into contact with an active cluster.

If you are served a Quarantine Order, find out more here.

If you are on our Home Recovery Programme, find out more here.

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 should you get infected.

As of 17 September 2021, 82% of our population has completed their full regimen/ received two doses of COVID-19 vaccines, and 84% has received at least one dose. So don’t hesitate. Get your vaccination today. It is easy and hassle-free.

REMEMBER

Avoid strenous physical activities for 14 days after each vaccination. If you experience chest pain, shortness of breath or abnormal heart beats, seek medical attention immediately.


Closure of Selected Vaccination Centres (VCs)

With more than 80% of the population having completed their full vaccination regimen, the number of vaccinations per day has dropped sharply, to less than a quarter of its peak. We will therefore progressively reduce the number of mass Vaccination Centres. Instead, we will shift vaccination operations to more PHPCs, as well as mobile and home vaccination teams for the seniors. 

By the end of September, four mass Vaccination Centres, namely Bukit Timah Community Club, Kolam Ayer Community Club, Marsiling Community Club and Yuhua Community Club will be closed. More details on the closure can be found in the table below.

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.

Vaccine Booster Programme

To maintain the high level of vaccine protection, we will be rolling out the vaccine booster programme from 14 Sep onwards 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, 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 should consult their treating specialist before taking their booster dose 2 months after their second dose.

False:

A Facebook post circulating online that a three year-old preschooler has died from COVID-19 at KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH) and that this death was deliberately not reported.

Fact:

This is completely untrue and a total fabrication. As of 14 August, there has been no child who has died from COVID-19 at KKH.
