COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Programme

COVID-19 vaccine boosters are administered after a prescribed time has passed since the recipient received his/her second dose of a 2-dose regimen vaccine OR dose of a 1-dose regimen vaccine. Persons are eligible for their booster vaccine based on the date they previously completed their COVID-19 vaccine regimen. Thus the booster programme will be rolled out in phases.

Members of the public who received the required doses of a COVID-19 vaccine are invited to walk-in, on a phased basis, to any of the COVID-19 Booster Vaccination locations identified, to receive their booster vaccine.
