About Campaign

Seniors are vulnerable to the COVID-19 virus infection. SATA CommHealth has a committed group of frontline healthcare workers who are helping to support them. We serve them in their homes, our therapy centres as well as our medical centres.

It is important for seniors to get the influenza (virus) vaccine as well as the pneumococcal (bacterial) vaccine. When a senior is infected by the COVID-19 virus, he may get a pneumonia and can get infected by other infections of the lungs as well. That is why it is crucial to protect them against influenza and pneumococcal infections.
Even though there is no vaccine for COVID-19 currently, it is important to help protect our seniors against other types of lung infections.

Each influenza vaccine cost about $30 to $40 and each pneumococcal vaccine (PCV-13) cost $120 to $150 in clinics. Many seniors cannot afford these vaccinations and choose not to take them.

Your donations will help us reach out to these vulnerable seniors to vaccinate them as well as to help us continue running our existing services for our seniors.

Thank you for your kind generosity during this worldwide pandemic.

We thank you for your generous contributions. Your donations will be used to fund this programme as well other SATA CommHealth's programmes for the needy and seniors.

About the Charity

HERE TO CARE for the health of seniors and vulnerable in the community.

SATA CommHealth was established in 1947 as a charity healthcare organisation fighting against tuberculosis in the early days. The organisation has since evolved to become a comprehensive and quality healthcare provider serving seniors and vulnerable in the community.

We serve our beneficiaries through community events, subsidised care at our medical centres as well as home and centre-based services which include homecare, doctors-on-wheels, day rehabilitation centres and Fernvale Community Hub.

With the COVID-19 pandemic evolving, more resources are required to care and serve the underprivileged for their medical and social needs, while fulfilling our prime duties as Public Health Preparedness Clinics (PHPC) supporting MOH, in managing patients with acute respiratory infection (ARI) symptoms at all our medical centres. SATA CommHealth has also provided X-rays services through our mobile buses at Singapore Expo earlier this year.
