COVID-19 vaccinations begin in Singapore

Singapore has started vaccinations against the COVID-19 disease. A total of 40 healthcare workers at the National Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCID) were administered their first COVID-19 vaccination on December 30, with senior staff nurse Sarah Lim, being the first. According to reports by Channel News Asia (CNA), before the COVID-19 outbreak, she performed pre-screening, triage and carried out procedures such as blood-taking and electrocardiograms. She also coordinated clinic operations at the Special Precaution Area at NCID’s Clinic  

According to NCID factsheet, before vaccination the staff will receive a vaccine information sheet and vaccine screening form. While waiting for their turn, they will be asked to fill in their personal particulars, medical information and declaration and consent on the vaccine screening form.
