News Press Releases

Update on Vaccination Progress

1. As of 3 February 2022, more than 192,000 children aged between 5 to 11 have received at least their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, while more than 56,000 have received their second dose. In total, we have delivered close to 250,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccines, with a record number of almost 60,000 doses delivered in the most recent week of 24 to 30 January 2022. More details can be found in Annex A.

2. Among the students in our primary schools, about 75% have signed up, and at least 7 in 10 have already received at least their first dose, with a similar number expected to receive their second dose by end February 2022 based on bookings made. In addition, we have received almost 18,500 registrations from children who are of the typical pre-school age (i.e. born in 2016 and 2017) on the Ministry of Health's (MOH) National Appointment System (NAS) at child.vaccine.gov.sg, and close to 13,000 have already received at least their first dose.

3. MOH has also started to progressively invite individuals aged 12 to 17 who are eligible for the national booster vaccination programme, with those aged 16 to 17 invited first. We strongly encourage those who are medically-eligible to receive their booster vaccination early for better protection. MOH Mobile Vaccination Teams will be deployed to Special Education (SPED) schools for students who may find it challenging to visit a vaccination centre (VC) for their boosters. SPED schools will share the registration instructions and guidelines with students and their parents/guardians.

Two Paediatric Vaccination Centres to Cease Operations After 27 February 2022

4. By end February, we will have relatively fewer remaining children who would need to be vaccinated, after another 3 to 4 weeks of high vaccination demand. As such, MOH will gradually reduce the number of paediatric VCs in the coming weeks. This will also allow MOH to allocate more resources towards the national booster vaccination programme, which has just started for individuals aged 12 to 17.

5. Two paediatric VCs at Nanyang Community Club (CC) and Queenstown CC will therefore cease operations after Sunday 27 February 2022. These two paediatric VCs will continue to accept appointments made via the NAS until their eventual closure but will no longer accommodate any walk-ins for their Dose 1 appointments from 7 February 2022.

6. 13 paediatric VCs will remain in operation after the closure of the Nanyang CC and Queenstown CC paediatric VCs. Please refer to Annex B for a map of the remaining paediatric VCs.

7. With high vaccination rates, we can look towards resuming more elements of school life with appropriate safeguards. MOE will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and make adjustments where necessary to keep our schools safe. We strongly urge parents/guardians to get their children vaccinated as soon as possible to protect them against the rising Omicron wave, and prevent them from getting severely ill if they do get infected.
