More than 400,000 students from schools and Institutes of Higher Learning (IHLs) will be vaccinated against Covid-19 with the Pfizer vaccine. The Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine is already approved for those aged 16 and upwards in Singapore and, in line with countries including the UAE and the US, the vaccination drive has been extended to those aged 12 to 15 years; this is the first Covid-19 vaccine to be approved in Singapore for this age group. 

The Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Ministry of Education (MOE) has now launched a vaccination programme for students in this age group. The first students to be vaccinated will be graduating cohorts at local secondary schools and Pre-University levels, in particular, students sitting for the GCE N-, O-, or A-Level examinations (or equivalent qualifications) in the second-half of 2021. 

In the first two weeks of June, other groups of full-time students in local schools will also be invited to have the vaccine. This includes the international schools of Hwa Chong Institution, Anglo-Chinese School and St Joseph's Institution. Students or parents of students will receive an SMS with a unique link for them to book vaccination appointments at any of Singapore's vaccination centres, including the four dedicated MOE vaccination centres. 

Students in private schools and other international schools are not currently eligible for this vaccination exercise; they can expect to get the vaccine when it is opened up to the general public for their age bands.
