To collect the oximeter, residents must bring along the leaflet complete with the redemption tab, to any of the participating supermarket and pharmacy outlets of NTUC FairPrice, Sheng Siong, Giant, Cold Storage, Watsons, Unity, or Guardian island-wide.
Temasek Foundation announced on 24 June 2021 that it is providing one free oximeter for every Singapore household to enable everyone to monitor their blood oxygen levels regularly.
“Silent pneumonia” is one of the most serious consequences of COVID-19, where seriously ill people can feel generally well, despite damaged lungs and dangerously low levels of oxygen.
An oximeter can help alert us to seek medical attention when the levels become dangerously low. Temasek Foundation is providing oximeters under its Stay Prepared initiative to help everyone to stay safe, especially with the emergence of new and more infectious COVID-19 variants.
Singapore Post will be distributing a Stay Prepared leaflet with a redemption tab to each household letterbox between Monday, 28 June 2021 and Saturday, 3 July 2021. Simply take the leaflet (complete with the redemption tab) to any of the collection outlets to redeem an oximeter.
Collection during store opening hours starts on Monday, 5 July 2021 and ends Thursday, 5 August 2021. There is plenty of stock, so there is no need to rush.
Pro Tip: To avoid crowds, residents may wish to collect after 7 July 2021 or during off-peak hours.
Residents may collect the oximeters on behalf of other family households or their friends and neighbours by bringing along their household leaflets (with redemption tabs).
