SINGAPORE, Jan 17 — A number of Malaysians working in Singapore have started receiving the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine.

Those who received the injection are mostly working in the sector that is given priority to receive the vaccine in this republic.

Some of them started sharing the experience of taking the injection on the Malaysian-Singapore Border Crossers Facebook page, which now has almost 82,000 members.

According to Imra Astata Ibrahim, who works in the marine sector, he took the first injection on January 13 and will take the second dose after 21 days.

When contacted by Bernama, Imra Astata, 40, who is renting a room in Jurong West here, said he did not hesitate to get the vaccine with 10 of his Malaysian colleagues.

In fact, the father of three has high hopes that by getting vaccinated, it will be easier for him to travel back and forth to Johor as before.

“Who knows there will be an understanding between the two countries to facilitate the movement of commuters for workers who have received this vaccine,” he said.

Imra Astata only returned to the republic on September 24, 2020 after strict measures at both borders were introduced in March last year to curb the Covid-19 pandemic.

Asked if there were any effects after taking the vaccine, Imra Astata said before taking it, he and his colleagues had been informed of the possible side effects.

“So far my friends and I are healthy after taking the jab. Only on the first day I did feel a slight numbness and pain at the injection area,” said Imra Astata, who hails from Johor.

The Singapore government has made provision for all Singaporeans and long-term residents in Singapore to get vaccinated by end-2021, if there are no unforeseen disruptions to vaccine shipments.

Singapore received the first shipment of Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine on December 21.

To ensure accessibility of the vaccine and enable the republic to achieve a higher rate of inoculation for the population, this vaccination will be free.

According to the republic’s Ministry of Health, as of January 12, 2021, more than 6,200 individuals have received their first dose of the vaccine here.

These numbers are expected to rise substantially in the coming weeks as it continues to ramp up its vaccination operations, it said.

In line with the recommendations by the Expert Committee on Covid-19 Vaccination to prioritise vaccinations of groups that are most at risk, Singapore has begun vaccinating healthcare workers progressively from December 30, 2020. — Bernama

M'sian workers in S'pore share experiences of receiving Covid-19 vaccine

Many Malaysians are working in sectors that have been prioritised for vaccination.

Matthias Ang
Malaysians working in Singapore have begun to receive the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine, Malaysian media reported.

They are largely workers in sectors that have been prioritised for vaccination by the Singapore government.

Several have since taken to a Facebook group known as 'Malaysia-Singapore Border Crossers' to share their experiences of taking the vaccine.

They also were warned about possible side-effects beforehand.

Imra said:

"So far, my friends and I are healthy after taking the jab. Only on the first day, I did feel a slight numbness and pain at the injection area."

Imra added that he received his first jab on Jan. 13 and will receive the second dose after 21 days.

He also voiced his hope that the vaccine will make the task of travelling back and forth between Johor easier, and that both Malaysia and Singapore can facilitate the movement of vaccinated commuters.

The worker is currently living in a rented room at Jurong West and had last arrived in Singapore on Sep. 24, 2020.

Vaccine priority includes migrant workers

According to the Ministry of Health (MOH), the construction, marine and process sector, as well as migrant workers, have been prioritised for the Covid-19 vaccine as they have been identified as jobs or settings where risk of a super-spreading event is high.

In addition, migrant workers will also receive the vaccine for free, according to an interview by CNCB Asia with Minister for Foreign Affairs, Vivian Balakrishnan.

When asked about the vaccine programme for migrant workers and whether such workers also fall into the essential workers category, Vivian replied:

"From a professional and medical perspective, a human being living in Singapore is a human being equally at risk of either getting infected or infecting others. So this is the reason why we do not discriminate on the basis of nationality, for all people domiciled, living, working, in Singapore."

Vivian added,

"We have announced that we will make it free. To answer your question on the foreign workers, they will get access to the vaccine on the same terms as our local people, which means it will be free, and the priority will be on the basis of risk and need."
