Vaccination progress

MOH stated on Nov. 30 that it had updated Singapore's overall population numbers due to outflows of migrants and deaths, which meant that the total population slightly decreased.

This therefore has an effect on the vaccination coverage percentages.

Percentage of total population undergone full regimen/received two doses: 87 per cent

Received at least one dose: 87 per cent

Received booster shot: 27 per cent

Percentage of eligible population vaccinated: 96 per cent
