Appeal for early vaccination
Appeal for Early COVID-19 Vaccination
We will offer vaccinations to more segments of the population from April onwards, so that all Singaporeans and long-term residents in Singapore will have the chance to be vaccinated by end-2021. In the meantime, we have received appeals from members of the public who wish to receive their vaccination early for a variety of personal reasons. While our focus has been to vaccinate identified priority groups on public health considerations, as more vaccine supplies arrive, we will consider allowing Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents with very exceptional circumstances to receive their vaccination earlier.
Please fill in this Form if you are requesting for early vaccination:
At this time, MOH is considering appeals only for Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents based in Singapore who meet the following criteria:
|(1) Travel for medical reasons/compassionate grounds||• Applicant / immediate family member (IFM) seeking medically necessary treatment which cannot be reasonably received in Singapore
• Overseas-based IFM is critically ill
• Attend to post-death matters of an overseas-based IFM
IFMs are limited to parents, parents-in-law, spouse, children, siblings, siblings-in-law, grandparents and grandparents-in-law only.
|(2) To take up or complete a formal education/vocational programme overseas||Please submit your application only if you are travelling to take up or completing a formal education/vocational programme.
• Physical presence in the foreign institution is required to start/complete course
• Physical presence in the foreign institution is required for course examination.
• Physical presence is required to gain entry to the institution
|(3) To take up a new job or return to employment overseas||Take up or return to overseas employment, or be based overseas for work for which working from Singapore is not possible and not going overseas would result in the loss of the job.|
Applications with no supporting documents attached will not be entertained and applications with insufficient documentation may be rejected. All other applications will be considered on an exceptional basis only. We are only able to accept English language documentation (please provide translations for non-English documentation).
We will prioritise applicants who are able to receive the full COVID-19 vaccination. Please note that for the current vaccines available, two doses are required six to eight weeks apart, and require a further two weeks after the second dose to be fully effective. To provide sufficient lead time for processing and scheduling, you should submit your request at least ten weeks before departure from Singapore.
Submission of this form does not guarantee prioritisation for vaccination. Successful applicants will be notified by email. Re-appeals will not be entertained unless there are new grounds for consideration.
