The Integrated Wellness Clinic (Novena Specialist Centre), a member of iAPPS Health Group (“iHG”) 3P Medicine Company, has been appointed by Singapore’s Ministry of Health (“MOH”) as one of 24 private clinics to administer the Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine.
Carrie Ee, Director of Operations at Integrated Wellness Clinic at Novena Specialist Centre, said in an interview with CNA938: “We see it as an honour to be selected as one of the 24 clinics in providing the Sinovac vaccine. We see this exercise as serving the nation together.”
Selected clinics by MOH are based on the clinic’s ability to administer the vaccines safely, properly and efficiently. Other considerations include experience in vaccine administration, compliance history at past licensing inspections, and proposed administration fees for affordability assurance.

Interested vaccine-takers can opt for Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine at our clinic at an administrative charge of $25.
Sinovac COVID-19’s cost have been made free by the Singapore Government and individuals are not charged for the vaccine cost, beyond administrative fees, making the vaccine readily available and affordable.
With the COVID-19 likely to become endemic and as our society moves towards this possible “new normal”, the responsibility falls on individuals in the community to abide by our nation’s safe management measures such as social distancing and hand hygiene to curb the spread of COVID-19.
It is, however, important to note that while vaccinations are essential, they are not sufficient.
Beyond taking care of our health — living well — it is just as important to ensure that we are eating well, and working well.
“Even as more of us receive the COVID-19 vaccination, we must continue to abide by the COVID-19 safe management measures, such as wearing face masks when we are out in the community, maintain hand hygiene and social distancing. In addition, we should continuously strive towards strengthening our immunity by living healthily. This includes getting adequate rest, staying hydrated, maintaining a well balanced and nutritional diet and keeping active with regular functional exercises.”
— Dr. Lam Pin Min, iHG Chairman & Former Senior Minister of State for Health
