Singapore Residents Aged 60 69 To Get Covid 19 Vaccine From March Rest Of Population From April



(The Star) – Covid-19 vaccinations for people aged 60 to 69 will start around the end of March, with the rest of the population to follow suit in April, said Health Minister Gan Kim Yong on Friday (Feb 19).
If all goes well and there are no disruptions to the supply, one million more people would have received shots by April.
Some 250,000 Singapore residents have been vaccinated to date, with around 110,000 having received their second dose, Gan added.
The aim is to get another one million people to take their first dose of the vaccine by early April, added Education Minister Lawrence Wong, who co-chairs the task force tackling the pandemic with Gan.
“If all goes according to plan, then we can progressively roll out to the other age groups beyond March,” said Wong.
“We will continue to monitor the supply of vaccine, because that’s the critical issue that will enable us to get vaccines out… We will try our best to ensure that we can get these vaccines to Singapore.”
The ministers were speaking to reporters at a vaccination centre at Jalan Besar Community Club. The centre began operations on Thursday (Feb 18), and is open daily from 8.30am to 10pm.
The Health Ministry said that Covid-19 vaccination for seniors aged 70 years and above will start on Monday (Feb 22), following a pilot for those living in Ang Mo Kio and Tanjong Pagar.
More than 5,000 seniors from both towns have received their vaccinations.
Over the next three weeks, others in that age group can expect to receive letters inviting them to sign up for vaccination.
Gan noted that Singapore currently has 11 vaccination centres in operation, with three more slated to open next week. More than 30 centres will be up and running by the middle of March, with the full complement of around 40 centres to be in full swing by end April.
He said: “We will watch the progress and if need be, we will open up additional vaccination centres to cater to the needs of the population.”
Asked about the recent incident of a 72-year-old who suffered a cardiac arrest after getting his first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, Gan reiterated that there is no evidence that the vaccine led to the man’s medical trouble.
“I want to assure Singaporeans that we do take these very seriously,” he stressed. “Whether they are related to vaccinations or not, we want to know if there are any such incidents so that we can investigate in-depth and better understand the situation.”
Gan also said that the Government will continue to refine its processes to ensure that vaccination will remain safe.
Before getting vaccinated, people will have to answer questions such as whether they have medical conditions that have compromised their immune systems, or if they have had severe allergies.
Volunteers like 70-year-old Agnes Teo have been going from door to door to explain vaccinations to seniors and help arrange their vaccination appointments.
“I explain vaccinations to them and let them know things like whether or not they should wear long sleeves,” said Teo, who speaks English, Mandarin, Malay and a few Chinese dialects.
