Temasek is giving out one free oximeter per household from 5th July 2021 to 5th August 2021. A letter will be sent to your mailbox. You can redeem the Oximeter at various collection points around the island.
What is Oximeter?
Temasek Foundation is providing one free oximeter for every Singapore household to enable everyone to monitor their blood oxygen levels regularly.
An oximeter measures blood oxygen levels and pulse rates.
The COVID-19 virus can cause blood oxygen to drop to dangerously low levels, even when you feel well, or have no other symptoms of the virus. This is known as “silent pneumonia”.
If left untreated, the low oxygen levels can damage vital organs, with very serious consequences.
Here is a better explanation Oximeter.
As usual, you can go to this website and key in your postal code to see the nearest collection points near your home.
This time round, the collection is not from vending machines. Instead you can go to supermarket like Sheng Siong, NTUC or pharmacies and etc to collect the Oximeter.
Take note that you will receive one Stay Prepared letter with redemption tab intact.
Here are the steps to collect the free Oximeter: –
