This one is only for Singaporean children, right? Not for a baby from foreign country and papa works in Singapore?

Sorry, the link doesn't seem to work so I can't read it. Most countries follow very similar vaccination schedules. In general, you should choose one country's schedule and stick to it to avoid duplication or missing something. My kids were born in the UK and we have lived a considerable amount of time in other countries, so I just followed the Singapore schedule. If you choose to follow another country's schedule, I think it should be OK. But keep your records well.

Hi,

My 4 year old DD has not gone for her MMR yet, and my 2 year old DS have not gone for any except his first Hep B jab. Anyone can advise where should I go if i just want to do the compulsory jabs? Is it polyclinic?

If you are a Singapore citizen, the compulsory jabs are free at polyclinics. But if you want the many-in-one type, there may be a charge. I brought my kid to the polyclinic when we lived in Singapore - the nurses are very experienced and quick.

Hi
I believe for child immunisation jab, you can call the polyclinic for appointment.

I thought so , but there was once i swing by to enquire , the receptionist told me i need to walk in if its my first visit. Very time consuming, need to queue up to get registered.

Ask them when the queue is shortest. As far as I recall, Mondays are the worst days, and afternoons are usually less busy than mornings.
