Unsure of how to register to receive your Covid-19 vaccine once it's your turn? Read on below for the steps to follow

The Covid-19 vaccination programme is being progressively rolled out to all Singaporeans and long term residents in Singapore, as the Government begins to expand its programme to younger age groups. On Wednesday (March 24), the Covid-19 multi-ministry task force announced that those aged 45 years old and above can now register for their vaccination.

As of March 23, more than 1.1 million Covid-19 vaccine doses have been administered with over 300,000 who have received both doses. The dosing regimen is at day 0 and 21 (i.e. 21 days apart) for the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, and day 0 and 28 (i.e. 28 days apart) for the Moderna vaccine. You must receive both doses to have full vaccine protection.

Vaccinations will be free for all Singaporeans and long-term residents and the Ministry of Health (MOH) will notify you to make an appointment for the vaccination. 

There are two ways to make an appointment: you can either book online, or visit selected community centres or clubs near you to book in person.
