Singapore – 70% of population vaccinated against Covid-19


Seventy per cent of Singapore’s population are vaccinated against Covid-19 as of Sunday (Aug 8), data from the Ministry of Health (MOH) showed.

In its nightly update on the coronavirus situation in Singapore, MOH said on Monday that more than 3.86 million people have completed their full vaccination regimen as of Sunday — a day ahead of the country’s 56th birthday.

The ministry’s vaccination data usually lags by a day and no figures on the number of vaccinations given out as of Monday were yet available.

The figure exceeds the Government’s earlier target of having two-thirds of the population vaccinated by National Day.
