Singapore first country in Asia to receive Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine

Singapore has been the first Asian country to receive the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine.

The vaccine has arrived on Monday via a Singapore Airlines cargo plane.

The Asian country last week joined a handful of other countries around the world, including Britain and the United States, which have approved the jab.

It plans to inoculate its 5.7 million people by the third quarter of 2021, with priority given to health workers, the elderly, and the medically vulnerable.
