Some students received text messages from the Ministry of Health (MOH) on Wednesday (May 5) stating that they were nominated to receive the Covid-19 vaccination.
Soapbox understands that these messages were sent to Hall residents.
The NTU Students’ Union confirmed that the messages were legitimate in a statement released at 6.45pm on Wednesday.
“The University has confirmed that MOH has started arranging for NTU Students to receive vaccinations. The University will be disseminating more details via an email notice shortly,” the statement said.
The notifications from MOH include a link to a government agency website where students can book appointments for two doses of the vaccination.
Students can then choose their preferred vaccination centre and timeslots, with appointments available from May 6.
The website also allows students to choose between the Moderna and Pfizer-BioTech vaccine brands, which may affect which centre they can make a booking at.
