Singapore: Covid-19 vaccination drive for 400,000 students has started

Singapore has started Covid-19 vaccination drive for 400,000 students with ages 12 and above. It has started today at 8 AM which began with those who are taking the N, O and A-level examinations.

A line of students along with their parents to accompany them were seen in the Bishan Community Club for the vaccination.

The 17-year-old Ryan Oh, who was among the students in line said the he was getting the vaccine to protect his grandmother as they live together. According to him, even though most seniors have gotten vaccinated, his grandmother’s doctor did not give her the approval to receive the vaccine as she has severe allergies.

“The new coronavirus variants spread faster, and this new wave of Covid-19 seems more concerning than last year. I don’t want to risk passing it to her,” he said.
