Name and Constituency of Member of Parliament
Ms He Ting Ru
MP for Sengkang GRC
Question No. 2533
To ask the Minister for Health (a) what action is being taken to verify that all vaccinations or Antigen Rapid Test (ART) results administered by the clinics linked to the alleged vaccine fraud case are accurate and for any discrepancies to be corrected in the relevant database; and (b) what action will be taken against patients who receive falsified vaccinations or ART results.
The Ministry of Health (MOH) takes a serious view on the accuracy of vaccination records and Antigen Rapid Test (ART) results that are recorded and stored into our national systems, as this has a direct impact on public health and safety.
MOH had lodged a complaint with the Singapore Police Force (Police) as soon as our investigations against the alleged errant clinic detected false vaccination and false positive ART results. Both MOH and Police are working closely to establish the false records in the clinical database. Investigations are ongoing but once the records are verified to be false, MOH will make the correction on our national systems immediately and these patients will have their vaccination or recovered status correctly recorded.
Patients who have obtained falsified vaccination status or false positive ART results and have had the false data uploaded to our national systems will also be referred to the Police for investigations.
