SINGAPORE -- The Singaporean government will start coronavirus vaccinations for senior residents next Wednesday, as the country steps up its vaccine rollout to accelerate its economic recovery. 

The city-state was one of the first in Asia to kick off vaccinations. This makes its progress a focal point as neighbors look to accelerate -- or in some cases simply begin -- their own programs.
