In addition, eight vaccination centres will also be set up by end-February.
A total of 6,200 people have been vaccinated in Singapore since the vaccination drive started on Dec 30, 2020, said Health Minister Gan Kim Yong on Wednesday (Jan 13).
Those who have received the vaccinations include healthcare workers in public and private hospitals, Home Team officers involved in front-line healthcare operations and staff from Ren Ci’s Bukit Batok nursing home.
Mr Gan added that by end-February, Singapore will have eight vaccination centres.
Of the eight centres, three are already operational. Two are at Changi Airport’s Terminal 4, while the other is at Raffles City Convention Centre.
By next week, the centres at the former Hong Kah Secondary School and Woodlands Galaxy Community Club will be ready. The four remaining centres will be ready by the end of next month.
The COVID-19 vaccination shots will eventually be available at polyclinics and general practitioner clinics islandwide.
Should all go to plan, Singapore will have enough vaccines to inoculate everyone by the third quarter this year.
Currently, only the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, which requires two injections to be given 21 days apart, has been approved in Singapore.
More COVID-19 vaccines delivery is expected to arrive in the coming months, including those from US biotechnology firm Moderna and China’s Sinovac.
