To date, some 250,000 Singapore residents have been inoculated against the disease.
Singapore residents aged 60 to 69 will begin receiving their COVID-19 vaccinations from around end-March.
The rest of the population in April will start receiving the vaccination in April.
This was announced by Health Minister Gan Kim Yong on Friday (Feb 19).
Mr Gan added that some 250,000 Singapore residents have been vaccinated to date, with around 110,000 having received their second dose.
If all goes according to plan, about one million more people would have received shots by April.
Education Minister and co-chair of the COVID-19 Multi-Ministry Taskforce Lawrence Wong also said that the aim is for another one million people to take their first dose of the vaccine by the end of March.
On Friday evening, Mr Wong added that the stricter COVID-19 measures in place during the Chinese New Year period is set to remain for a few weeks even after the festivities end.
While the COVID-19 situation has improved in Singapore, he cautioned against easing measures as the disease has an incubation time.
“If the situation remains stable and under control, we will review and we will consider the measures again and see whether or not there is scope for us to adjust,” Mr Wong said.
