Among the recipients was a 16-year-old boy who had a heart attack while exercising during the week after he was vaccinated. The Health Ministry confirmed the payments, which included S$225,000 given to the boy's family, in a Tuesday statement to local newspaper Today.
The Health Sciences Authority (HSA) said on Monday that as of July 31, almost 10,000 "adverse effects" from vaccines had been reported, almost 400 of them listed as "serious."
Over 4.2 million people in Singapore, which has a population of around 5.7 million, have been given two doses of vaccine, according to the Health Ministry.
Official numbers collated by the University of Oxford's Our World in Data show Singapore top of the list in Asia for percentage of population vaccinated against the virus.
The ministry reported 56 new virus cases on Tuesday. Of the roughly 66,000 total cases, most were reported last year among migrant workers crammed into residences known as dormitories.
Most displayed mild or no symptoms and Singapore's virus-related death toll of 44 is one of the world's lowest. - dpa
