FOR THE SITTING OF PARLIAMENT ON 18 FEBRUARY 2022
Name and Constituency of Member of Parliament
Mr Gan Thiam Poh
MP for Ang Mo Kio GRC
Question No. 2545
To ask the Minister for Health whether the Ministry will consider designated centers or clinics for residents to follow up and check specifically if they are medically suitable for COVID-19 vaccinations.
The Expert Committee on COVID-19 Vaccination (EC19V) has determined that most residents can be safely vaccinated. Only those who are allergic to COVID-19 vaccines are medically ineligible. Individuals with specific medical queries or requiring detailed medical consultation, can approach their own doctors for a more detailed discussion on their health conditions, and their suitability of vaccination.
All vaccination centres are also equipped to screen for and advise on the medical suitability for the COVID-19 vaccines under the National Vaccination programme. The vaccination centres are staffed by trained medical personnel who are also guided by clinical guidelines developed in consultation with EC19V.
