If you are a NCCS patient, you have two options to get the COVID-19 vaccination:
a) Register for vaccination at National Vaccination Centres as part of the COVID-19 vaccination programme
b) Seek your doctor’s advice at your next outpatient clinic consultation at NCCS and be registered for vaccination at SGH Vaccination Clinic @ Bowyer, if you are eligible and have no medical contraindications.
Note: The COVID-19 vaccination is currently not extended to inpatients at SingHealth acute hospitals.
All the categories below apply specifically to mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccines (i.e. Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines), based on data currently available. These recommendations may change as more data becomes available globally and/or in Singapore.
Active cancer not on treatment with chemotherapy, radiotherapy or immunotherapy
CAN be vaccinated.
Active cancer not on treatment is defined as:
a) Not on any treatment in the past 3 months
b) No planned treatment in the next 2 months.
According to the updated Ministry of Health (MOH) guidelines, people who have active cancer can receive COVID-19 vaccination as long as they have not received chemotherapy, radiotherapy or immunotherapy in the last three months, and do not plan to undergo these treatments in the next two months. People in remission can be vaccinated, as can those on active cancer hormonal therapy.
Outpatients who are on follow up at NCCS’ specialist outpatient clinics will be offered vaccination if they are medically eligible. Our doctors will assess patients for their suitability to have the vaccination. Selection is based on individual patient’s clinical condition.
Patients who wish to get vaccinated can consult the doctor at their next outpatient clinic consultation at NCCS. If the patient is assessed to be suitable, they will be offered vaccination and with their consent, our clinic will help to book the appointments for the first and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccination at SGH Vaccination Clinic @ Bowyer located on SGH Campus.
Alternatively, patients may opt to take the vaccination at the National Vaccination Centre when they receive the notification to do so.
