MOE is commencing COVID-19 vaccination for students in schools and Institutes of Higher Learning (IHLs) as part of the national vaccination exercise.
Parents/guardians of all eligible students aged 12 and above as at 1 June 2021 will receive the SMS invites to schedule students’ vaccination appointments from 1 June 2021. Students whose 12th birthday fall after 1 June 2021 will be invited for vaccination at a later date. Parental/guardian consent is required for students below the age of 18 when booking vaccination appointment slots via the National Appointment System. Parents/guardians of children aged 12 and children in SPED schools are required to accompany their child/ward for the vaccination.
While the COVID-19 vaccination is not mandatory, we would like to encourage all medically eligible students to be vaccinated when the vaccine is made available to them and to register for a vaccination slot early. Do consult your child’s/ward’s doctor if your child/ward has underlying medical conditions that might affect their medical eligibility.
