National childhood vaccines FREE for Singaporean citizens at Intemedical




For Singaporean citizens, the National Childhood Immunisation Schedule's vaccines can be administered in CHAS enabled clinics like Intemedical. These are fully subsidized (i.e. free) by the government.


Many parents have previously got their children vaccinated at either the government polyclinics (free) or at their private pediatrician/GP (paid).


Here's why you should get them at our clinic.


1. It's free for Singapore Citizens





It is in the title and we'll say it again - its free for Singapore Citizens! As we are a CHAS GP clinic, you will not have to pay for these vaccinations for your child - just like how it is like in polyclinics.


You may start bringing your child for vaccination from 2 months old till 18 months. After that, a yearly influenza vaccine is also fully subsidised to 5 years of age.


2. Skip the polyclinic queues and see our doctors with minimal waiting time





Our doctors at Intemedical will administer the vaccine for your child and perform the developmental screening all in one setting.


Developmental assessments are important to pick up any developmental delays which may require early intervention. Our doctors will run through a list of questions as well as observe your child in the clinic setting to make this assessment.


We also sanitise our clinics frequently to maintain a clean environment for your infant. We endeavour to reduce the queue and wait times for children with scheduled appointment times for vaccinations.



3. Extended opening hours - come at your convenience from 8am to 12 midnight everyday



Our clinics are open from 8am to 12am (last registration will be at 11.45pm) everyday including public holidays. Walk ins are also accepted.


This flexibility is great for parents who find it challenging to schedule the vaccination around their schedule or their child's.



BONUS - Drop by the clinic and ask for this FREE Childhood Touchpoint checklist card!
