#LetsGetVaccinated: A guide to getting your shot


2.6 min read

Hey GetGoers! In order to protect ourselves against COVID-19, we’ve been encouraged to get our vaccinations. If you’re interested in getting your shot but aren’t sure where to start, fret not. We’ve created a handy guide with everything you need to know about getting vaccinated! 💉

1. Registering for your vaccination

You can register for a vaccination slot at https://preregister.vaccine.gov.sg/. After registering, look out for an SMS that will provide you with a personalized link to book the available slots at your preferred location.  

If you have already gotten a code sent to you via SMS, you can book your appointment here: https://appointment.vaccine.gov.sg/ 

2. Head over to the vaccination center

On the day of your vaccination, head down to your selected vaccination center. Remember to wear something comfortable and with short sleeves so that it’s easier for you to get the jab. You may also wish to get a family member or friend to drive you to and from the center – it’s okay to need a bit of moral support. 😉

Don’t forget to bring along your NRIC for identification purposes!

3. Get your shot!

The jab has been likened to a tiny ant’s bite, so take a deep breath and it’ll be over before you know it! There’s a 30-minute observation period after the jab, so bring a book or pre-download an episode of your favourite show to pass the time.

4. Head home to rest and recharge

You may feel a bit of soreness and fatigue after getting the jab, so stay hydrated and get ample rest. You may wish to apply a cold compress on the injection site and prepare some paracetamol for the soreness. Avoid any strenuous exercise and make sure you have a nutritious meal to help your body recharge!

In a few weeks time, you’ll be required to head back to the same centre for your second shot. The process will be exactly the same as the first, so you’ll know what to look out for!

We can all do our part to keep our loved ones safe and protected. Book your appointment and #LetsGetVaccinated! 💪
