By mid-April, there will be a total of 40 vaccination centres available across Singapore.
Singapore residents below the age of 45 can soon make their COVID-19 vaccination appointments from June onwards, according to Dr Janil Puthucheary, Senior Minister of State for Health in a Parliament speech on Apr 5.
Previously, the elderly were prioritised for the vaccination due to their lower immune system. However, as more of the older Singaporeans have received their vaccinations, the youth are in line to get theirs next.
As of Apr 3, around 1.05 million individuals have gotten their first dose of the vaccination, with around 468,000 of them having received their second dose and completing the full vaccination process.
Dr Janil noted that to date, around 60 per cent of eligible seniors aged 70 and above, and close to 70 per cent of eligible seniors aged 60 to 69 have received the COVID-19 vaccination or booked their vaccination appointments.
Nearly 500,000 residents aged 45 to 59 have already registered for their vaccination shots. The rest should receive their SMS notification by mid-May, and can expect a booking slot by early June.
After registering for a vaccination, you will receive an invitation through SMS to make your appointment.
Singapore’s supply of vaccines remains limited by the ability of vaccine manufacturers to deliver them, given their high demand globally.
This has resulted in limited booking slots in recent days. But as more supplies arrive, the Government will progressively open more vaccination slots for Singaporeans.
