The Ministry of Public Health has set up COVID-1 9 Vaccination Scheduling Unit (VSU) for businesses to schedule vaccine jabs for its workers.
“To support the gradual easing of restrictions it is important that workers in the service industries are protected against COVID-1 9. To facilitate this, MOPH has set up a COVID-1 9 Vaccination Scheduling Unit (VSU) for the vaccination of business workers in support of the National COVID-1 9 Vaccination Programme," the ministry said. 
The unit supports the vaccination of workers in all businesses, but prioritization would be given to key businesses that are in direct contact with the rest of the community such as barber and hairdresser salons, restaurants, retail shops, supermarkets, hotels and other hospitality services. 
 Businesses — not individuals - can contact the Unit directly to schedule vaccination appointments for their staff:
 This vaccination service has already started, and tens of thousands of workers have been vaccinated so far.
