SINGAPORE -- The Singaporean government on Wednesday opened the city-state's first two coronavirus vaccination centers, including one inside a temporarily suspended terminal at Changi Airport, as officials look to accelerate inoculations.

The goal is to have eight such centers up and running nationwide by the end of February, the Health Ministry said in a statement the same day, with more to come thereafter.
