Those who have already received one dose of the vaccine will be contacted by MOH or the clinic where they received it to have the second one by Dec 31 so as to complete their primary vaccination series.
“Eligible individuals who have completed their primary vaccination series and wish to receive the Novavax/Nuvaxovid vaccine to achieve minimum protection or as an additional dose, should also do so by Dec 31, with a minimum interval of five months after their last dose,” said the Health Ministry.
Eligible individuals can receive the Novavax vaccine by calling any participating Public Health Preparedness Clinics (PHPC) to make an appointment.
MOH added that those who are medically ineligible to receive the mRNA vaccines can choose to receive the Sinovac-CoronaVac vaccine, which is available on the national vaccination programme until Sep 30, 2024.
They can also choose to take Sinopharm, which continues to be available at private clinics which have applied to use the vaccine under the Special Access Route.
