SINGAPORE: A new shipment of 101,000 doses of Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine arrived in Singapore on Monday (September 20), Health Minister Ong Ye Kung said.
The orders came from private health facilities and the Ministry of Health (MOH) helped facilitate the shipment of those orders through the special access route, he said.
“They will benefit people such as those who were allergic to mRNA vaccines,” Ong added in the Facebook post.
He said 2% of the people of Singapore have taken at least one dose of the Sinovac vaccine, which is administered by the Department of Health as well as private clinics.
The minister also indicated that these new stocks will be available in some clinics in a few days.
