91,474 people have received their booster doses so far.

91, 414 received the booster doses by Moderna and 60 people received Pfizer booster.

The Ministry of Health says for the month of February, a further 175,558 have become eligible for booster doses and they are targeting to cover all these eligible individuals in the days ahead.

93% of the adult target population are fully vaccinated while 98.2% have received at least one dose.

30,823 children between the ages of 15 to 17 are fully vaccinated and 37,571 have received at least the first dose of the vaccine.

11,468 children between the ages of 12 to 14 have received both the doses of the vaccine while 21,872 have received at least one dose.

Permanent Secretary for Health Doctor James Fong says during this third wave, unvaccinated deaths in the vaccine-eligible population are occurring at 17 times the rate of vaccinated deaths.

He says this is a strong indication that many of the unvaccinated deaths in the vaccine-eligible population were preventable.

Dr Fong is strongly urge anyone who hasn’t been vaccinated to get vaccinated now because COVID-19 is here to stay, and Omicron will not be the last variant.
