The COVID-19 vaccination programme seeks to protect Singaporeans against COVID-19, as well as to protect businesses and jobs through the progressive re-opening of Singapore.
There is a risk of serious, life-threatening disease and death from COVID-19 infection, especially in the elderly and other vulnerable groups (e.g. persons with comorbidities). Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is one way to prevent the disease, minimise the risk of transmission, and prevent our healthcare system from being overwhelmed.
As part of the national COVID-19 vaccination strategy to protect Singaporeans and long-term residents, vaccination will be made available to migrant workers. Vaccinating this group of workers will help strengthen our defense against the formation of new COVID-19 clusters in the large dormitories and in the local community.
Post-vaccination Rostered Routine Testing (RRT) for Migrant Workers
Migrant workers who do not have previous records of infection will be subjected to a lower frequency of testing after they have completed the two full doses.
Vaccinated migrant workers are still required to attend their regular Rostered Routine Testing (RRT) cycle (14-day or 7-day) as indicated in the Swab Registration System (SRS) after the second dose of vaccine until otherwise informed via email and/or SMS. The vaccinated migrant workers will then be moved onto a lower frequency of testing progressively.
Employers will need to ensure that their workers continue to attend their scheduled RRT appointments in the SRS to avoid their AccessCode turning red. Employers do not need to request for the change in RRT cycle as this would be done automatically provided the company UEN and NRIC/FIN exists in SRS.
