Ministry of Health’s Health Appointment System

Bethesda Medical is part of the Ministry of Health and Health Promotion Board’s Health Appointment System (HAS)

The HAS was setup by Open Government Products (OGP), a division in GovTech Singapore, to make it easier for individuals, especially the elderly, to receive their vaccine. HAS directly connects patients to CHAS GP clinics (Community Health Assist Scheme General Practitioner clinics), to simplify and accelerate the vaccination process. Bethesda Medical is proud to be a part of this programme to provide subsidised vaccination for eligible citizens and to reduce their waiting time at the clinic through the system.

How to book?

You may book through Health Appointment System (HAS) by visiting www.book.health.gov.sg, simply search for ‘Bethesda Medical’, or book through our appointment page here and select a slot at your convenience.

Fully Subsidised Vaccines under National Adult Immunisation Schedule (NAIS)

The National Adult Immunisation Schedule (NAIS) was established in November 2017 to provide guidance on vaccinations that persons age 18 years or older should adopt to protect themselves against vaccine-preventable diseases.

Certain adults are at increased risk of complications or susceptible to vaccine preventable diseases if they have not previously received the vaccination and are in contact with individuals who have the infection. Vaccinations recommended under the NAIS aim to prevent such infections among susceptible individuals and reduce complications, morbidity and mortality.

The NAIS was developed based on international best practice and the recommendations of the Expert Committee on Immunisation (ECI). Considerations include: 

  • local disease burden;
  • age, occupation, pre-existing medical conditions, vaccination history; 
  • vaccine safety, efficacy and cost effectiveness of the vaccines in preventing infections among susceptible individuals and reducing complications, morbidity and mortality.

The vaccines in the NAIS protect against the following 11 diseases – Influenza, pneumococcal disease, human papillomavirus, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, measles, mumps, hepatitis B, and varicella (chickenpox).

Singapore Citizens who are enrolled in Healthier SG are able to have fully subsidised Vaccinations that are under NAIS.
CHAS and Medisave can also be used to subsidise the cost of vaccines.
