Coronavirus: Singapore excludes China’s Sinovac jabs from national vaccination tally; South Korea cases surge

Singapore is not counting people who took Sinovac Biotech’s CoronaVac vaccine in its national count, according to the Ministry of Health.

Only people who have taken Moderna and Pfizer shots are reflected in the overall vaccination numbers, a spokesman for the ministry said.

Sinovac recipients are included in a national immunisation registry that clinics can see in order to avoid giving multiple vaccines to the same individual, the spokesman said.
