Singapore residents can now review their Covid-19 test results as well as their vaccination records through a new feature in the Health Hub app.
HealthHub is a one-stop portal that allows users to access their public health records and medical appointments online.
The Covid-19 test results are usually sent via SMS or phone call or can also be picked up in person. The results are now uploaded and can be accessed via the app.
Users of the app can also review their vaccination records in real time.
The information available includes the type of vaccine, the batch, the location and date of the vaccination, and the next date for the second dose.
To view their records, users will need to log into the HealthHub app with their SingPass and click on the Covid-19 Records tab.
Currently, the feature is only available in the mobile app and not in the HealthHub web portal.
In addition to providing software for electronic patient records that supports safe and efficient vaccinations.
We also hope to give vaccinated individuals convenient access to their Covid-19 related records in one place as paper records can easily be lost.

Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines are currently approved for use in Singapore.
Minister of Commerce and Industry Chan Chun Sing also announced that 40 vaccination centers will be set up in Singapore by the end of March this year, with the aim of setting up a community vaccination center in each HDB property.
Each center can give around 2,000 vaccinations a day. This is in addition to the vaccinations in all 20 polyclinics and selected clinics in preparation for public health.
Seniors across Singapore will be vaccinated starting February 22nd, with the rest of the population set to follow suit in April.
