SINGAPORE — Singaporeans aged 12 to 39 will be able to register for their COVID-19 vaccination appointments from Friday (11 June).

"Children who turn 12 in 2021 must have crossed their birthday before they are eligible to book a vaccination appointment," said the Ministry of Health (MOH) in a media release.

Currently, those aged below 18 will be given only the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, while those 18 and above can choose between the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines.

Following online registration, via vaccine.gov.sg, registrants will be progressively invited to book their vaccination appointments through a personalised booking link sent by SMS to their phone number.

Registrants can expect to receive their SMS a few days after registration. "However, we seek your patience and understanding that the SMS may take up to two weeks for some, as more appointment slots for vaccination will be made available as more supplies arrive," said MOH.

Those who have already registered their interest on the site need not re-register. The registration invitation will eventually extended to the rest of Singapore's residents in the coming months, the ministry added.
