People who cannot carry on with the second dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine due to allergic reactions have been invited to go for the Sinovac jab. They will be considered fully vaccinated under Singapore's national vaccination programme. Senior Minister of State of Health Janil Puthucheary said this in reply to Parliamentary questions on Monday (Aug 2). He also said those who are allergic to the mRNA vaccines may choose to wait for the Novavax vaccine that the Ministry of Health has procured and expects to be delivered by the end of the year.
