Singaporeans in the age group will receive a two week priority for bookings.
Singaporeans between 12 to 39 years old can book their COVID-19 vaccination from Friday (Jun 11).
The Ministry of Health (MOH) announced on Thursday (Jun 10) that Singaporeans in the age group will receive a two week priority window for their bookings.
Those eligible for the vaccine can register online at vaccine.gov.sg. An SMS with a personalised booking link will be progressively sent out to all registrants after.
The link will be sent within a few days or up to two weeks after registration as more appointment slots are made available and vaccine supplies arrive. Those who have previously registered their interest are not required to re-register.
Parent or guardian consent will be required for all children or wards under the age of 18. However, parents or guardians are not required to accompany their child or ward aged 13 and above on their vaccination day.
Individuals who had previously recovered from COVID-19 more than six months ago and are part of age groups eligible for the vaccine will also be given priority to receive a single dose of vaccine as recommended by MOH.
The single dose has been proven to boost their immunity. MOH will prioritise those who had recovered more than six months ago as individuals who had recovered within the first six months are likely to have a stronger immune response.
The news comes as Singapore moves into Phase 3 (Heightened Alert) with an increase in social gathering cap and easing of measures.
The announcement is also in line with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s address on May 31 where measures were introduced to ensure students and young adults receive their first dose of vaccination by National Day.
So far, more than 4.4 million Singaporeas have received their COVID-19 vaccine, with 2.6 million having received at least their first dose.
