Professor Teo Yik Ying, dean of the Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health at the National University of Singapore, weighs in with The Big Story hosts Hairianto Diman and Olivia Quay on phase three and Singapore's vaccination plans. Singapore will enter phase three of its reopening in two weeks, on Dec 28. The permitted group size for social gatherings will go up from five to eight, with capacity limits in public places such as malls, attractions and places of worship to be increased. Covid-19 vaccines will be free for all Singaporeans and long-term residents who are currently here. Those who are at greatest risk will be given first priority, including healthcare workers and front-line personnel, as well as the elderly and the vulnerable.
