Flu jab booking set

Community vaccination centres (CVCs) in various districts will offer free seasonal influenza vaccination (SIV) to Hong Kong residents aged 50 or above when they are there for COVID-19 vaccination starting from October 6.   The Government announced today that eligible people can make reservations for receiving both COVID-19 vaccination and SIV through the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme booking system starting from 9am tomorrow.   They may also choose to receive the free SIV on site when they are receiving the COVID-19 jab starting from October 6.   Given that local seasonal influenza activity has been staying at low levels since February 2020, the overall immunity against influenza in the community is at present relatively low, the Government noted.   As the winter flu season is approaching, citizens are strongly urged to complete the recommended dosage of COVID-19 vaccines and the latest seasonal influenza vaccine as early as possible to obtain better protection in the event of

Recognised jab record list updated

The Government today announced that from October 27, it will accept COVID-19 jab records issued by Cambodia as recognised vaccination records for Hong Kong residents who have stayed in Group A specified places.   Hong Kong residents who hold vaccination records issued by the relevant authority of that country in the prescribed format can board a flight for Hong Kong from Group A specified places, it said.   The Government will also recognise the vaccination records issued by Kazakhstan and British Virgin Islands, which are non-Group A specified places, from October 27.   This will enable Hong Kong residents who have stayed in Group A specified places and hold jab records obtained from relevant authorities of these places in the prescribed format to board a flight for Hong Kong.   According to the Government's stringent inbound prevention and control measures for travellers from overseas places, those who have stayed in Group A specified places on the day of boarding or 21 days before that day can only board a flight for Hong Kong if they are Hong Kong residents who are fully vaccinated and holding recognised vaccination records.   In addition, the vaccines administered to the travellers must be those recognised by the Government.
