Advisory to employers - Vaccination exercise for employers to protect migrant workers from influenza
Issued on 29 November 2021
- With the end-of-year influenza (flu) season arriving, the Ministry of Manpower would like to encourage all employers to vaccinate their migrant workers, especially those living in dormitories, to protect them from flu. Vaccination will help reduce the numbers of workers falling sick and needing to take medical leave due to flu or flu-like symptoms, which minimises work disruption for employers. It will also result in fewer workers needed to be tested for possible COVID-19 infection due to acute respiratory illnesses.
- Employers can book an appointment with any of the MOM-designated medical centres in December 2021. The cost of flu vaccination is determined by the clinics and will be borne by employers.
- The fight against infections, including COVID-19, is a shared responsibility amongst everyone. We encourage all employers to arrange for their workers to be vaccinated against flu.
