The first delivery of the COVID-19 Moderna vaccine was received by Singapore.

Singapore received the first shipment of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine, two weeks after the authorities approved it for use here. The vaccines were brought on board Singapore Airlines (SIA) flight SQ7137, a scheduled freighter service from Brussels, Belgium, and arrived at approximately 1.40pm in Singapore.

“The vaccines were prioritised for loading into the aircraft in Brussels and was given precedence during unloading in Singapore. They were then transported to SATS’ cold-chain facility, Coolport, for subsequent storage and ground transportation,” SIA said. It was announced on Feb 3 that an interim authorisation was issued by the Health Sciences Authority for the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to be used in Singapore for people aged 18 and over. This is the second vaccine in Singapore that has been approved for use.
