From 18 years of age, the second shot’s time validity has been set at 5 months, for those from 17 and below, there is no validity time frame on their vaccine shots.

Last chance, get your third vaccine shot now. From Sunday 16 January 2022, the validity of the second shot will be set at 5 MONTHS from the second shot.
