Singapore’s high vaccination rates have been pivotal to enable us to weather successive waves of COVID-19 infections. In the transition to a new, endemic COVID-19 normal, the Expert Committee on COVID-19 Vaccination (EC19V) has reviewed vaccination guidelines as follows:
National Vaccination Programme will be offered free to all citizens
COVID-19 vaccinations under the National Vaccination Programme will remain free for all Singaporeans Citizens, Permanent Residents, Long Term Pass Holders and certain Short Term Pass Holders. Eligible persons may book a vaccination appointment at the Joint Testing and Vaccination Centres, participating Public Health Preparedness Clinics, polyclinics and Vaccination Centres. Refer here for the locations.
From 15 February to 2 April 2023, seniors can continue to receive vaccination from Mobile Vaccination Teams (MVTs) at various heartland locations for three days each. The list of MVT sites and schedules can be found here.
Vaccination requirements remain for Permanent Residence, Long Term Passes and Work Passes
COVID-19 vaccination requirements will still apply for new applications of Permanent Residence, Long-Term Pass and Work Pass.
Renewal of selected Work Permit Holders and S Pass Holders in the construction, marine shipyard and process sectors or residing in dormitories will also continue to be subjected to the COVID-19 vaccination requirements.
From 1 April 2023, recently recovered persons from COVID-19 will not be granted temporary exemption from COVID-19 Vaccination requirements.
