Ministerial statement: Gan Kim Yong on COVID-19 vaccination exercise

(Updated: )

The COVID-19 vaccination drive will be Singapore’s largest and the public must make prior bookings for jabs at clinics and vaccination centres when it is their turn. Health Minister Gan Kim Yong also told Parliament on Monday (Jan 4) that a choice of vaccine will not be allowed. The Ministry of Health will introduce a vaccine injury financial assistance programme to support anyone who suffers serious side effects from the shot. Mr Gan said Singapore has put the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine through a rigorous review process and is doing the same for the Moderna and Sinovac vaccines.
