More than 8 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered.
About 75 per cent of the Singapore population has been fully vaccinated as of Saturday (Aug 14), while 81 per cent has received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
The Ministry of Health added in an update on Sunday that under the national vaccination programme, which consists of Pfizer-BioNTech Comirnaty and Moderna vaccines, a total of 8,399,585 doses have been administered.
This covers 4,424,312 individuals, with 4,104,828 individuals having completed the full vaccination process.
In addition, 147,528 doses of other vaccines recognised in the World Health Organization’s Emergency Use Listing (WHO EUL) have been administered, covering 83,536 individuals.
Singapore is targeting 80 per cent of the population to be fully vaccinated by September, when it’s expected to further ease the COVID-19 measures in place. Singapore had initially aimed for 50 per cent of the population to be fully vaccinated by August, and 75 per cent by October, but the target was revised in June.
As part of the easing of COVID-19 restrictions on Aug 10, those who are fully vaccinated are able to dine in groups of five at F&B establishments. Those who have not completed their vaccination regimen will only be allowed to dine in groups of two at coffee shops and hawker centres, or will require a negative pre-event testing result.
For those who are still unvaccinated, walk-ins are now accepted at vaccination centres under the national vaccination programme.
