[Updated as of 20 Nov 2021]
As we transit towards a COVID-19 resilient nation, vaccination boosters will be a key enabler for us to protect ourselves and our loved ones, particularly our seniors. As such, the vaccination booster programme will be extended to:
a. (From 9 October) Healthcare and frontline workers,
b. (To progressively roll out) Persons and staff in institutionalised settings*, and
c. (From 9 October) Persons aged 30 years and above.
As of 20 November 2021, the Expert Committee on COVID-19 Vaccination (EC19V) recommends to standardise the interval rate of administering boosters from six to five months, for all age groups eligible for boosters, as this would be an appropriate interval to pre-empt waning of antibodies.
All eligible persons will be able to receive their booster doses of the Pandemic Special Access Route (PSAR) mRNA vaccine from five months after completing their second dose.
Eligible individuals will be invited to make an appointment for their booster dose. An SMS with a personalised booking link will be sent to their registered mobile number to book an appointment on www.vaccine.gov.sg. They may receive their booster dose at any vaccination centre or participating Public Health Preparedness Clinic.
For those who are eligible based on the criteria to-date (aged 30 and above, frontline workers at higher risk of COVID-19 infection, etc.), but have not received their SMS invitations, they are also invited to walk in to any Moderna Vaccination Centre to receive their booster vaccination without a need to book an appointment.
