The government is extending Vaccination-Differentiated Safe Management Measures (VDS) to more places to keep the unvaccinated safe while we reopen further.
However, there are some who are simply unable to get vaccinated for medical reasons.
As such, these people can apply for a concession to enter venues with VDS, such as malls and eateries.
From 15 Nov, they can visit any GP clinic or healthcare institution to be certified as medically ineligible.
According to the Ministry of Health (MOH) on Monday (8 Nov), those medically ineligible for Covid-19 vaccines under the national vaccine programme will be recognised.
They can visit any GP clinic or healthcare institution from 15 Nov to get certified.
The criteria are as follows:
The full criteria can be found here.
The certification will take effect from 1 Dec.
MOH is working with GovTech to reflect the ineligibility status on TraceTogether, so that they won’t need to use the paper memo to enter VDS venues.
These are the venues where VDS will be in effect:
Though the concession exists for the medically ineligible, MOH warns that the unvaccinated still carry a higher risk of infection and severe illness.
As such, it strongly encourages individuals to minimise such activities and “to use this concession judiciously”.
However, if there is an event that you simply must go for, the certificate should help.
