In a recent announcement (Oct 2023), the Ministry of Health has released important updates regarding the COVID-19 vaccination program in Singapore. The Pfizer-BioNTech/Comirnaty and Moderna/Spikevax vaccines will be upgraded to their latest versions based on the Omicron XBB.1.5 variant.


Who is it suitable for?

The updated XBB.1.5 vaccines of both Pfizer-BioNTech/Comirnaty and Moderna/Spikevax are suitable for individuals aged 6 months and above. They will be available to the public in stages, starting with the updated Pfizer-BioNTech/Comirnaty XBB.1.5 vaccine for individuals aged 5 years and above from October 30, 2023.


This is free for Singapore citizens, PRs and permit holders.


When Should You Get It?

Persons aged 5 years and above are recommended to receive a booster dose about five months after completing their primary series. Additionally, individuals aged 60 years and above, medically vulnerable individuals, and residents of aged care facilities are advised to receive an additional dose in 2023/2024, around 1 year (and no earlier than 5 months) after their last dose.


Why Should You Get It?

Scientific data shows that the updated XBB.1.5 vaccines generate higher antibody titres against current and emerging strains, offering better protection against newer strains of COVID-19. This ensures that individuals, particularly those at risk of severe disease, have an enhanced level of protection.


How Can You Get It?

To get vaccinated, individuals can book their appointment with us at https://book.health.gov.sg/covid.

We currently only have the Pfizer vaccination at our Kovan clinic.

Is Singapore prepared for the haze?

The Ministry of Health has a reserve of N95 masks, and is ready to release them to retail pharmacies in the event of a shortage.

There are also plans to distribute masks to low-income and vulnerable residents in the event of a severe haze episode in Singapore.


How did the haze come about?

Due to two climate phenomena- El Nino and the positive Indian Ocean Dipole.

El Nino is a weather phenomenon that brings hotter and drier conditions to Southeast Asia, while the positive Indian Ocean Dipole causes warmer sea surface temperatures in the Western Indian Ocean.

These drier and hotter conditions can result in vegetation fires, and hence increase the risk of transboundary haze in Singapore.


Should I be concerned?

Children, elderly, and people with chronic lung disease, heart disease are more sensitive to the health effects of haze. In addition, it is advised that pregnant women reduce exposure to haze for the health of their unborn baby.



How will the haze affect me and my family?

Haze particles can affect the heart and lungs, especially in people who already have chronic heart or lung disease such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), allergic rhinitis or heart failure.

Among healthy individuals, short-term exposure, such as continuous exposure to unhealthy daily average PSI levels over a period of a few days, to high levels of haze particles may cause irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat in healthy individuals.



What should I do if I experience the above symptoms?

You may book an appointment with Intemedical here at any one of our branches- Kovan, Potong Pasir, Teck Ghee or Tampines.


Intemedical offers a wide range of key services- for a more comprehensive list, you may visit our page here and reach out to us should you become affected by the haze.

Remember to stay hydrated and don a proper mask during the haze season.
