The remaining co-payment for subsidised vaccinations can be paid via MediSave. Do check with your preferred CHAS GP if they process MediSave claims and your eligibility to use MediSave.
For Permanent Residents (PRs), subsidies for pneumococcal vaccinations are available only at polyclinics for the recommended age group and those with certain medical conditions. However, MediSave can be used to cover the out-of-pocket expense at both CHAS GP clinics and polyclinics. As the prices of vaccinations at polyclinics may vary, please check directly with the preferred polyclinic before booking an appointment.
