Since beginning on 30 December 2020, our vaccination programme has progressed steadily. Beginning with healthcare workers, other frontline workers and seniors have also been vaccinated.
Good progress so far
As of 23 March
- 1,109,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered
Good progress has been made in vaccinating our seniors, beginning with those aged 70 and above. With more consistent deliveries of vaccine supplies, the vaccination of seniors aged 60 to 69 years-old was pushed forward by two weeks to mid-March. Seniors who have not yet registered for their vaccinations can book their appointments at any of the People’s Association’s Community Centres and Clubs.
Expansion of Vaccination Programme
The vaccination programme will now be rolled out to younger age groups. As they are more familiar with digital technology, the Ministry of Health (MOH) will no longer be sending personalised letters of invitation. Instead, those eligible can follow a two-step process:
1. Register directly at the vaccine.gov.sg website
2. Registrants will receive a SMS with a personalised URL enabling them to book their appointments online
Those aged 45 to 59 years old can now register their interest at vaccine.gov.sg. MOH will send SMSes to registrants as soon as there are vacant slots available for appointment-booking. This should happen within a few days of registration, but timings are dependent on the vaccine delivery schedule.

Get vaccinated when it is offered to you.
Encourage your family members and friends to go for their vaccination when they have the opportunity.
