Singapore‘s most recent rash of Covid-19 cases saw many students at all levels coming down with the virus

In an earlier update on Monday, Mr Chan said almost nine in 10 students from graduating cohorts have signed up to be vaccinated, and half of them had received their first doses

Those aged 18 and older have been allowed to opt for either the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine, while those between 12 and 17 are offered only the Pfizer jab as the Moderna shot has not been approved for use for that age group

MOH gave the green light for those aged 12 to 15 to get the Pfizer vaccine earlier in May
