This is to make vaccination more convenient and accessible for all.
From Oct 30, individuals will be able to make appointments to take the Sinovac-CoronaVac COVID-19 vaccine at Raffles City Convention Centre.
Due to the lower efficacy of the vaccine, individuals are still strongly encouraged to complete a two-dose primary regime with the mRNA vaccines as they offer more protection.
Previously, the Sinovac-CoronaVac vaccine was only offered at selected authorised private clinics.
On Oct 23, it was announced that the Sinovac-CoronaVac COVID-19 vaccine will be included in the National Vaccine Programme as a three-dose regime, following the interim authorisation of the vaccine by the Health Science Authority (HSA).
Those who are medically ineligible for the mRNA vaccines are advised to take three doses of the Sinovac-Coronavac vaccine.
Currently, seniors aged 60 and above are allowed to walk in to any vaccination centre without an appointment to receive their booster shot. This will also apply to the one at Raffles City.
From Nov 1, individuals aged 30 and above will also be able to walk in to any of the Moderna Vaccination Centres to take their booster dose, making it more convenient to get booster shots quickly.
This applies to all Singaporeans, Permanent Residents, and Long-Term Pass Holders aged 30 years and above who have completed their second dose six months ago.
The Moderna Vaccination Centres include Buona Vista, Hong Kah North, Kebun Baru, Potong Pasir, Punggol 21 Community Club, as well as Radin Mas, Tampines East, Woodlands and Yew Tee Community Club.
Booster shots for all dormitory dwelling Migrant Workers and non-dormitory dwelling work-permit holders MWs in the Construction, Marine, Processing (CMP) sector will be scheduled by the Ministry of Manpower.
