Assoc Prof Jamus Jerome Lim asked the Minister for Health whether the existing form on Request to be Exempted from COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement has, inadvertently, precluded the possibility of doctors issuing a blanket exemption from vaccinations for medical reasons.
Mr Ong Ye Kung: Persons who submit the form for “Request to be Exempted from COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements” will be reviewed by doctors on their eligibility for COVID-19 vaccines. All our doctors have been provided guidance from MOH on the conditions to look out for and will recommend blanket exemption when appropriate.
