COVID-19 Vaccines

As part of our fight against COVID-19, Parkway Shenton will be making available the Sinopharm vaccine at selected locations in Singapore.

Sinopharm is the sixth vaccine to be authorised by the World Health Organization (WHO) for its emergency use listing, and received WHO validation for its safety, efficacy and quality.

As of 4 June 2021, the Sinovac-CoronaVac (Sinovac) COVID-19 vaccine has been approved for use in Singapore by the Ministry of Health under the Special Access Route (SAR) scheme. Under the SAR, COVID-19 vaccines approved by the World Health Organization for its Emergency Use List, can be imported and supplied by private healthcare providers as unregistered vaccines, to be administered to individuals in Singapore. This is part of the overall efforts to enhance vaccination coverage against COVID-19 in Singapore.

Since 2020, the government has rolled out a COVID-19 vaccination programme and is continually expanding its efforts to protect Singaporeans against COVID-19. Vaccination is free to all Singaporeans and long-term residents in Singapore. 

As advised by the Ministry of Health in Singapore, there is a risk of serious, life-threatening disease and death from COVID-19 infections, especially in the elderly and other vulnerable groups. Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 can help to prevent the disease, lower the risk of transmission, and keep our healthcare system from being overwhelmed. 

At Parkway Shenton, we are monitoring the developments of the COVID-19 vaccines closely, and are on standby to support the nation’s COVID-19 vaccination efforts in keeping our people safe and protected during this global pandemic.
