- 1. Why are students being prioritised for vaccination? Should my child be vaccinated?
The Ministry of Education (MOE) and the Ministry of Health (MOH) are prioritising the vaccination of students as part of ongoing national efforts to keep our education institutions and the wider community safe.
While vaccination is not mandatory, we encourage all medically eligible individuals aged 12 years and above to take up vaccination when this is made available to them. The risk of community spread remains, and comprehensive coverage of COVID-19 vaccination can significantly reduce the chances of COVID-19 infection for students and help to reduce the severity of the disease.
