While 81 per cent of Singapore’s population have been fully vaccinated, there are many who are eligible for vaccination but have yet to receive it due to being homebound.

As such, the national vaccination drive is shifting focus to address this gap with 33 medical teams going across the island to quickly vaccinate as many homebound people as they can.

Currently, they receive about 700 requests each week for home vaccinations for people who are homebound and unable to visit a vaccination centre for their jab.

With the help of different home care providers such as Edgedale Medical Clinic, Speedoc, and even Singapore Armed Forces Medical Corps, these teams are hoping to complete home vaccinations by the end of September.

According to the Ministry of Health (MOH) in its daily update, as of Saturday (4 Sep), 81 per cent of Singapore’s population have completed their full vaccine regimen, while 83 per cent have received at least one dose.

“As of 4 September 2021, we have administered a total of 8,783,111 doses of COVID-19 vaccines under the national vaccination programme (Pfizer-BioNTech Comirnaty and Moderna), covering 4,531,281 individuals, with 4,370,515 individuals having completed the full vaccination regimen,” said MOH.

“In addition, 170,577 doses of other vaccines recognised in the World Health Organization’s Emergency Use Listing (WHO EUL) have been administered as of 4 September 2021, covering 86,080 individuals.”
