In a commentary, RSIS Senior Fellow Han Fook Kwang explored the problem of whether to get vaccinated as an individual, and from a country’s perspective. The logical decision for an individual might be to wait and see what happens next, but for a country, getting the population vaccinated would be like giving the entire country a giant booster shot – it will be able to open up its economy and borders, and get back to normal life ahead of others. If Singapore adopts a wait-and-see attitude, it might become a laggard in this race to safety, he added.
…Han Fook Kwang is also Senior Fellow at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Nanyang Technological University.
