         We have made good progress in our national COVID-19 vaccination programme thus far. As of 8 August 2021, 70% of the population have completed their full vaccination regimen under the national vaccination programme and 79% of the population have received at least one dose.

2.      Since mid-July, seniors aged 60 and above have been allowed to walk into any vaccination centre, polyclinic or participating Public Health Preparedness Clinic to receive their vaccination without an appointment. From 2 August, all Singaporeans, Permanent Residents, and Long-Term Pass holders aged 18 years old and above have also been allowed to walk in to any of our 11 community vaccination centres offering the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine without a prior appointment.

3.      From 10 August 2021, to make it more convenient to get vaccinated, all Singaporeans, Permanent Residents, and Long-Term Pass holders aged 12 years old and above who have yet to come forward for their first dose will be able to walk in to any of the 26 vaccination centres offering the Pfizer-BioNTech/Comirnaty COVID-19 vaccine without a prior appointment.

4.      Vaccination remains a key enabler in our fight against COVID-19. We urge all who are eligible to be vaccinated. Individuals can also continue to book appointments at http://www.vaccine.gov.sg to get vaccinated.
