- The fees at CHAS GPs for recommended vaccinations would already include consultation services required in conjunction with the provision of NCIS/NAIS vaccinations and/or CDS. Singaporeans should not be charged an additional consultation fee at the CHAS GP clinics. Notes: - NCIS = National Child Immunisation Schedule - NAIS = National Adult Immunisation Schedule - CDS = Childhood Developmental Screening
Can I recommend other vaccine brands to the patient?The patient should take the vaccine that they have signed up for, unless they are medically ineligible to take it. If the vaccine that the patient signed up for is not in stock, please inform patients and check if they would like to reschedule to when the vaccine stock is available. It is highly recommended that the patients be advised on the type and cost of vaccines prior to administering the vaccines. If they are not eligible for subsidies for those vaccines, please inform them why they are ineligible.
What is the duration of each appointment slot?
The duration of each appointment slot is 30 minutes. If your clinic's opening hours are from 12pm to 2pm, available slots will be shown as 12pm, 12:30 pm, 1pm, and 1:30 pm.
Each slot is reserved for one patient only.
Does the patient make their payment online at the Health Appointment System?No. The Health Appointment System will not handle any payment. The patient will pay directly at the Clinic.
Do I have to give immediate priority to a patient with an appointment?No. There is no expectation for you to see the patient immediately at the allotted appointment time. A wait time of less than 15 minutes is reasonable.
For the initial launch, how many patients is the Government inviting to sign up for the vaccine?For the pilot phase, we had invited more than 600,000 elderly above the age of 65 who are recommended to take their CHAS-subsidised Pneumococcal vaccines, i.e. PCV13 and PPSV23.
How do GP clinics apply to be onboard with the TF-SCS Human Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Immunisation Programme?
You are invited to fill up (this form) to indicate your interest on coming onboard as a participating CHAS clinic offering HPV2 (Cervarix) for the TF-SCS Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Immunisation Programme and will be contacted by Singapore Cancer Society to proceed with the application process.
My CHAS GP clinic is already part of the TF-HPV Immunisation Programme. What do I have to do?
HAS clinics participating in this programme will be auto-enrolled as offering the HPV2 on their appointment system in order to reduce administrative work. There is an option to “opt out” of offering the HPV2 on the HAS Admin portal.
Note: Offering HPV2 on HAS does not automatically qualify your clinic for the Temasek Foundation HPV Immunisation Programme to offer HPV2 at no cost. You will need to separately register by submitting this form.
CHAS GP Clinics that are already on this programme do not have to register again.
Why should I be part of the Health Appointment System?
The Health Appointment System aims to raise our adult vaccination rates to protect our vulnerable population by connecting CHAS GP Clinics directly with the patients with the click of a button.
For the initial phase, we have reached out to more than 600,000 Singaporean elderly age 65 and above to encourage them to take their Pneumococcal vaccines.
By signing up to be part of HAS, we hope to help our GPs:
1. Bring more patients to their clinics.
2. Plan their vaccine supply better.
3. Be part of the nation's efforts to protect our vulnerable population.
To register your CHAS GP clinic on the Health Appointment System (HAS), kindly request the first admin account for your clinic through https://go.gov.sg/register-clinic.
