SINGAPORE (Aug 10): No prior appointment is needed from today at the 26 vaccination centres offering the Pfizer-BioNTech (Comirnaty) Covid-19 vaccine, according to the republic’s Ministry of Health (MoH).

The ministry said this is to make it more convenient for all Singaporeans, permanent residents, and long-term pass holders aged 12 years old and above who have yet to come forward for their first dose to get vaccinated.

“Vaccination remains a key enabler in our fight against Covid-19. We urge all who are eligible to be vaccinated. Individuals can also continue to book appointments at www.vaccine.gov.sg to get vaccinated,” the MoH said in a statement.

Since mid-July, seniors aged 60 and above are allowed to walk into any vaccination centres, polyclinics or participating Public Health Preparedness Clinic to receive their vaccination without an appointment.

 Earlier, from Aug 2, the republic allows eligible residents to walk into any of its 11 community vaccination centres offering the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine.

As of Aug 8, up to 70% of the population in Singapore had completed their full vaccination regimen under the national vaccination programme.
