Done the COVID vaccine? Need to check for Immunity?


Singapore citizens, permanent residents and long-term pass holders who received their COVID-19 vaccination overseas can get their immunisation records updated in the national registry here when they return, said the Ministry of Health (MOH) on 15th July 2021.



These vaccines include:

  1. Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine

  2. Comirnaty vaccine

  3. Moderna vaccine

  4. AstraZeneca vaccine

  5. Sinovac vaccines

To assist with updating your vaccination status, just visit our clinic with documentation to show proof of their overseas vaccination.


We will also need to do a simple blood test to check for antibodies in your blood.


However, do note also, that if you have done your vaccination in Singapore or overseas, and the serology result is negative, this means that you are unlikely to be protected against COVID.



According to MOH:

"The positive serology test provides an additional means to validate the vaccination status of an individual by detecting that antibodies have been mounted against the virus."

"Upon positive serology test result, the individual’s vaccination records will subsequently be reflected on HealthHub after a few days."



Do drop by our clinic to have a friendly chat with either Dr Lee Joon Loong or Dr Zhang Huipei (Mdm) to discuss more if you have any queries!
