In March final yr, two gyms in Singapore have been visited by Covid-19 instances which luckily didn’t end in clusters forming.
These incidents ought to have highlighted the vulnerability of individuals working on this sector, however I ponder why the Ministry of Health (MOH) didn’t think about giving early vaccination for folks working within the health trade.
With the Covid-19 outbreak at a Hong Kong health club in March this yr, I wrote in to MOH requesting early vaccination.
As a front-line service workers member within the health trade, I believed being vaccinated would profit the many individuals who go to the health studio, in addition to the group at massive.
However, my request for early vaccination was rejected as I didn’t fall throughout the prescribed classes of individuals who qualify for early vaccination.
It is now disheartening to listen to that the health trade has been labelled “higher-risk” by the authorities and that gyms must be closed throughout this era.
Perhaps MOH can now think about making vaccination obtainable to folks within the health trade.
