Tuesday, 20 Sep 2022 8:59 PM MYT SINGAPORE, Sept 20 — Two adults were given an undiluted vial of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines each on Sept 15, with one needing hospitalisation after experiencing headache and increased heart rate, the Ministry of Health (MOH) said. In response to queries from TODAY, the ministry said that it was alerted on Sept 19 to the incident.5495/5515 against the greenback, from 4. It happened at a clinic of ProHealth Medical Group in Hougang on Sept 15. He added that while Singapore has raised socio-economic levels across the board, “there will always be some who are not doing as well as others, and we will always want to give them extra help”. “One was hospitalised after experiencing headache and increased heart rate, and has since been discharged,” MOH said, adding the other patient did not report any adverse reaction. The market was closed on Friday (Sept 16), in conjunction with the Malaysia Day celebration. Each vial of Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine reportedly supplements five doses. Singapore has one of the lowest Covid-19 death rates in the world and it has kept fatalities low due to the country’s collective effort, and high Covid-19 vaccination and booster coverage, the ministry said.

This is based on an incident last year when an employee at the Singapore National Eye Centre was wrongly administered the equivalent of five doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine due to a human error. “This would allow the Federal Reserve to increase its interest rates, which could impact emerging currencies, including the ringgit,” he told Bernama . In his speech, Mr Lee also observed that there are people who not only questioned the relevance of such groups in multi-racial Singapore, but also raised suggestions to merge them to create one large outfit to serve all ethnic groups. “MOH takes a serious view of this incident and is carrying out a thorough investigation,” the ministry said. “The clinic and doctor who administered the vaccine have been suspended from the national vaccination programme until further notice. “However, the ringgit will likely remain weak against the US dollar amid the market’s anticipation of a full percentage point hike, or at least 75 basis points during Sept 20-21 meeting,” he said.” TODAY has asked MOH when the patient was hospitalised. “They are well-placed to tailor their assistance and customise programmes most relevant for their communities,” said Mr Lee. ProHealth Medical Group declined to comment.55 and RM4. The age-standardised death rate is defined as the number of deaths in a given age group.

In a separate incident earlier this year, MOH said it was investigating the death of a 103-year-old nursing home resident who was wrongly given a fourth dose of a Covid-19 vaccine in a case of “mistaken identity”. She had died on Jan 10, and an autopsy ordered by a coroner found the main cause of the woman’s death was pneumonia, with other contributing factors being cerebral infarction (or stroke) and coronary artery disease, which are natural disease processes common in seniors, MOH added at the time. Meanwhile, the ringgit was traded mostly lower against a basket of major currencies. “It is a very natural human impulse, and it strengthens the bonds between members of the community. — TODAY Advertisement .
