Covid-19 Vaccination

Sinopharm

The sixth vaccine authorised by the World Health Organisation (WHO) for its emergency listing, receiving WHO validation for safety, efficacy and quality.
Produced by the Beijing Bio-Institute of Biological Products Co Ltd, a subsidiary of China National Biotec Group (CNBG), Sinopharm is an inactivated vaccine called SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine.
WL&H Group has received approval under the SAR to provide Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccines in Singapore.
The vaccine is now available for administration. Due to high demand, we encourage you to register with us early to secure the vaccination.
How does Sinopharm work?
When an individual receives the vaccine, their body’s immune system identifies the inactivated virus as foreign and makes antibodies against it. Because the coronaviruses in the vaccine are dead, they can be injected into the arm without causing Covid-19. If the vaccinated person subsequently comes into contact with SARS-CoV-2, their immune system launches an immune response against it.
The Sinopharm vaccine has been trialed* to show an effectiveness of 79% against symptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection 14 or more days after the second dose.
