Advisory to MDW employers on COVID-19 vaccination for your migrant domestic worker

Issued on 14 May 2021

COVID-19 vaccination for your migrant domestic worker

Migrant domestic workers (MDWs) who are above 45 years old can register and receive their Covid-19 vaccination. From later half of May 2021, MDWs below 45 years old can register their interest and they will be invited when eligible, according to the prevailing age bands.

  1. Do encourage your MDW to register for COVID-19 vaccination as this can:
    • Prevent COVID-19 and minimise transmission.
    • Enable us to resume more activities safely.
    • Prevent the healthcare system from being overwhelmed.
    • Protect yourself and those who cannot be vaccinated due to medical reasons.
  2. You can assure your MDW that the COVID-19 vaccination is safe, even if she has the following conditions:
    • Chronic conditions (e.g. hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, heart diseases).
    • Non-severe allergic reactions to medication, food, or insect bites.
    • Eczema or asthma.
  3. When the vaccination is offered to your MDW, do guide your MDW on how to register:
    1. Register your MDW for COVID-19 Vaccination online.
    2. Your MDW will receive an SMS as soon as there are slots available for booking.
  4. Call the MOH COVID-19 hotline 1800 333 9999 if you require any assistance.
  5. Your MDW should download the TraceTogether app or have the TT token for contact tracing.
  6. We have provided information in their native languages. You can use them to explain to your MDW.
