SINGAPORE: More than 52,000 workers across the transport sector have already received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, the Ministry of Transport (MOT) announced on Thursday (Feb 11). 

These include 39,000 frontline staff in the aviation and maritime sectors or about 90 per cent of the 43,000 expected to be vaccinated under the Sea-Air Vaccination Exercise launched last month.

Meanwhile 14,000 workers from Singapore’s public bus and train operators have received their first jab of the vaccine since Jan 25, with 66,000 more land transport workers scheduled to receive their vaccination over the coming months, MOT said. 

Additionally, three flights operated by the Singapore Airlines (SIA) Group’s carriers – SIA, budget airline Scoot and regional carrier Silkair – took off on Thursday with all pilots and cabin crew vaccinated against COVID-19.
