To date, over 900,000 people in Singapore have received their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, said Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat on April 2 in a Facebook post. He added that the Covid-19 situation in Singapore “is currently under control” as the country’s vaccination rollout has progressed.
Today, it was announced that Singapore residents aged below 45 will be invited to book their appointments to receive the Covid-19 vaccine from June.
Senior Minister of State for Health Janil Puthucheary said in Parliament: “Based on the current schedule, we plan to begin inviting them in June. If all goes well, we will complete the vaccination programme as scheduled by the end of the year.”
He added that as of April 3, around 1.05 million individuals have received at least one dose of the vaccine, of which more than 468,000 individuals have received their second dose and completed the full vaccination regimen.
“We encourage everyone to be vaccinated when your turn comes and to turn up at the vaccination appointments that you have made so that you do not deny another person of the opportunity,” Mr Puthucheary said.
As of April 3, around 1.52 million Covid-19 vaccine doses have been administered, said Mr Puthucheary. He added that around 1.05 million individuals have received at least one dose of the vaccine, of which more than 468,000 individuals have received their second dose and complete the full vaccination regimen.
Concluding his speech in Parliament, the Minister said: “As more vaccine stocks arrive, we will continue to expand our vaccination programme to more segments of the population so that all Singaporeans and long-term residents in Singapore will have the chance to be vaccinated by the end of 2021.”
