Vaccination information for patients based in Hong Kong
Numerous infective agents surrounding us every day, some of which are dangerous, or even deadly. Having vaccination can help us develop our immunity and protect us against certain diseases and their complications. Among different vaccines, the annual (seasonal) flu vaccine is generally more common to the public. However, vaccines like hepatitis, shingles, DPT, and pneumococcal maybe less concerned by the public.
Even though vaccinations are not legally required by the Hong Kong government, there is a standardised immunisation schedule that healthcare professionals follow. Below are vaccination recommendations based on the Hong Kong Centre for Health Protection (CHP), Department of Health (DH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for your reference.
