Individuals who have booked a slot for their COVID-19 vaccination appointment can now bring it forward. 

In an announcement on Jun 25, the MOH said that those who have registered for vaccination can use their personalised booking link in the SMS issued by MOH to make a new appointment. 

This also applies to those who have taken their first jab and are currently waiting for their second doses. 

According to guidelines, the recommended gap between the first and second doses for the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines are three weeks and four weeks respectively. 

However, Singapore made the decision in May to delay the second doses for the vaccines to six to eight weeks to allow more people to get their first shot. With more vaccines now available – Singapore is now able to administer up to 80,000 doses daily – people are able to move their appointments for their second dose earlier too. 

To do so, individuals will need to enter the booking link provided to them by MOH at the vaccination appointment website,

At the website, an option to change appointments will be available.

Once their new appointment is confirmed, MOH will send another SMS to confirm the date of the new appointment. 

In a separate announcement, MOH said that the vaccination programme will be extended to the rest of the population from Friday (2 Jul), including all permanent residents and long-term pass holders in Singapore from ages 12 to 39.

They can register their interest to be vaccinated and will be invited to book their appointments via SMS.
