"The vaccine is safe and effective, even for former stroke patients like myself," Mr Heng, who is also Coordinating Minister for Economic Policies and Finance Minister, added in a Facebook post in the evening.
DPM Heng shared how thanks to the steady and skillful hands of Nurse Manager Imrana Banu, his vaccination was "Painless and done in less than 10 seconds".
Another vaccine candidate, developed by United States firm Moderna, has also submitted its data and is currently being reviewed by the HSA.
Singapore began its Covid-19 vaccination drive last month, and Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Covid-19 ministerial task force co-chairs Gan Kim Yong and Lawrence Wong, as well as Transport Minister Ong Ye Kung are among the ministers who have received their first doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
They will return for the second dose about 21 days after getting the first dose.
