Do Not Wait! Get a Jab! Keep Flu Away!

A low level of influenza activity in recent years can decrease our immunity against influenza virus. With more frequent travel and social interactions, the risk of getting infected by influenza virus could greatly increase. Receiving seasonal influenza vaccination (SIV) can boost our immunity against influenza virus and reduces the risk of developing severe complications and death.

Starting from 6 October 2022, Hong Kong residents of age 50 years or above and other eligible persons could receive SIV from private doctors/ clinics enrolled in the Vaccination Subsidy Scheme with Government subsidy of $260 per dose. Corporations/ companies can also arrange outreach vaccination activity at non-clinic venues and invite VSS doctors to provide outreach vaccination service. Please contact Centre for Health Protection at 2125 2125 for enquiry or click below for more information.

Don’t drop your guard against flu, get your flu jab now!
