Vaccinations to be progressively offered to 80,000 workers
Over the coming months, LTA will work with MOH and companies to progressively offer vaccinations against COVID-19 to about 80,000 land transport workers. This is part of Singapore’s national vaccination strategy to protect our workers, and strengthen the resilience of our essential transport services.
2 The first batch of 12,000 land transport workers to be vaccinated include employees of bus and train operators. They will receive their vaccines at two vaccination centres - the former Hong Kah Secondary School campus and Changi Airport Terminal 4.
3 Active taxi and private hire car (PHC) drivers will also be vaccinated. Vaccinations have already been offered to drivers who are involved in supporting Stay Home Notice (SHN) ground operations. We are working with MOH and taxi and PHC operators to offer vaccinations to the remaining drivers.
4 “Our land transport workers have been working tirelessly since the onset of COVID-19 to keep our essential transport services running. Vaccination will help keep our workers and their families safe and strengthen the resilience of these services. We strongly encourage land transport workers to step forward for vaccination,” said Ng Lang, Chief Executive, LTA.
