 Updates on National Adult Immunisation Schedule


The National Adult Immunisation Schedule (NAIS) was initiated in 2017 in Singapore, in
recognition of the need for active prevention of disease amongst specific groups within our adult population. These groups of Singaporeans are eligible to utilise their Medisave funds to defray the cost of these vaccinations.

From November 2020, the Ministry of Health is going one step further in providing subsidies for these Singaporeans, so that their overall cost of taking these vaccinations (whether through Medisave deductions, or out-of-pocket payments) is further reduced.

Please see below for the outline of the NAIS:


(adapted from MOH website, https://www.moh.gov.sg/resources-statistics/nationally-recommended-
vaccines)

Feel free to drop by any of our clinics to allow our doctors to assess, and recommend if you would
benefit from taking any of the above mentioned vaccines.

What's more, from 1st November 2020, the Ministry of Health will provide subsidies for ADULT vaccinations at authorised clinics for all Singaporeans. Speak to your OneDoctors clinic to find out more.

 Updates on National Childhood Immunisation Schedule


The National Childhood Immunisation Programme (NCIP) in Singapore began in the 1950s, starting with BCG immunisation (against TB) and progressively including more and more illnesses of public health concern over the years.

The National Childhood Immunisation Schedule (NCIS) currently stipulates the required and recommended vaccinations for all children residing in Singapore up to the age of 18 years old, whereafter the National Adult Immunisation Schedule (NAIS) takes over.

From time to time, the Ministry of Health reviews the NCIS, and considers addition of new immunisations to the Schedule, as scientific research provides new vaccines for prevention of diseases, and also to remove redundant or ineffective vaccinations from the Schedule. The most commonly cited example of this was the removal of the BCG booster dose for primary school children in 2001.

The NCIS is to be updated again from 1st November 2020, with the changes as outlined below:

Feel free to drop by any of our clinics to allow our doctors to assess, and recommend if you or your child will benefit from taking any of the above mentioned vaccines.

What's more, from 1st November 2020, the Ministry of Health will provide subsidies for CHILDHOOD vaccinations at authorised clinics for all Singaporean children. Speak to your OneDoctors clinic to find out more.
