SINGAPORE: Five new Joint Testing and Vaccination Centers (JTVCs) will begin operations from Thursday (Jun 23).

The five new centers – located in Ang Mo Kio, Bukit Merah, Sengkang, Woodlands and Yishun – will bring the total number of such centers in Singapore to 10.

These centers will offer the Pfizer-BioNTech/Comirnaty and Moderna/Spikevax COVID-19 vaccines, said the Ministry of Health (MOH) on Tuesday.

Novavax’s Nuvaxovid COVID-19 vaccine will be available at the joint testing and vaccination center at the former Bishan Park Secondary School, which was the first such center to begin operations.

“Individuals aged 12 years and above may walk into any of the JTVCs to receive their vaccination and booster,” said MOH.

It added that the vaccination center at Raffles City Convention Center will be closed on Jul 18, as Singapore “step(s) up more JTVCs and consolidate our resources and free up this space for other uses”.

The center will accept bookings made via the national appointment system and walk-ins for vaccination until Jul 18.

MOH previously announced that vaccination centers will be stepped down progressively with the majority of the population vaccinated.

The joint testing and vaccination centers are set up to ensure that COVID-19 testing and vaccination services remain accessible to the general public.
