Does anyone know when the Sinovac for Raffles will start?

Raffles what? Raffles Medical? Raffles City Convention Centre?

If you were hoping for the second one, you’ll be disappointed.

The ministry also reiterated that Sinovac is not part of the national vaccine programme and therefore will not be covered under the Vaccine Injury Financial Assistance Programme for COVID-19 Vaccination.
Read the article and the above quote carefully... You’ll have to pay if you want to be vaccinated with Sinovac. And in the *touchwood* event you experience an adverse reaction requiring hospitalisation, you won’t be reimbursed.

No point getting anything that isn’t endorsed or approved by the government, you’ll just end up paying for it in more ways than one.

The article already states that Sinovac got approved by the WHO for emergency use so MOH will be releasing guidelines for it in the near future.

Stop thinking/saying that the government is “not approving” Sinovac. They are still reviewing the data and that takes time.

I reckon it's all the Sinophiles that are in the population. There are a heck of a lot of them if a local fb group I'm in (7K members with only 2 PRs in the group) is any indication.

WHO EUL approval is a pretty low bar, though.

The government is absolutely not keen on approving Sinovac. Otherwise they would have done it 4 months ago, long before the vaccination campaign kicked into high gear.

There's a pretty strong hint on OYK's FB page - the minister of health himself circulated a JP Morgan report on Sinopharm (not Sinovac) a few days ago & felt compelled to highlight this particular graphic:

Looks to me like they're going all-out for max efficacy to reach population immunity ASAP, and so far mRNA vaccines shows the best results. So that's what they're using.

If Sinovac is able to reach people who'd just flat out refuse any non-Chinese vaccine, or people who simply can't use mRNA vaccines for medical reasons, that's certainly beneficial though.

With 200,000 doses available, that'd be around 2% of total population.

Really? Why do they prefer Sinovac actually, and why 2 PRs only ? :)

Because they are Sinophiles and there's no greater way to feel intense pride and racial superiority than a vaccine made in China?

Exactly, smoulder. The same ones who jump to the defense of China any time there is a tiff between China & the US instead of looking at the tiff objectively.

In theory, yes, but in practice any western country, including all of Europe.

Hong Kong - Hongkies should shut up

Taiwan - belongs to China

Tibet - belongs to China

India - who do these farking ah nehs think they are? America's lap dog? Just capitulate and make peace with China.

Australia - one nuke and "we" will sink your navy.
