Food and Health Bureau

Dear Dr WANG,

To safeguard public health and to allow the resuming of normal activities
of society gradually, the Government is implementing a territory-wide
COVID-19 Vaccination Programme (the Programme).  Vaccination service of
COVID-19 vaccine will be provided free of charge to Hong Kong residents
who are voluntarily willing to be vaccinated.

The objective is to offer protection to Hong Kong citizens in a phased and
orderly manner according to risk categories and achieve “herd immunity” in
the long run.  There are various settings for delivery of COVID-19
vaccination, including hospital and clinic setting, outreach to
institutions as well as Community Vaccination Centres.

A dedicated website at [1]www.covidvaccine.gov.hk provides members of the
public latest information on the Programme, including policy and
strategies adopted, vaccines information, expert opinion, booking status
and statistics.  Members of the public can also refer to Government Press
Releases for daily statistics and any new measures for the Programme.  To
encourage members of the public to get vaccinated, we will continue to
step up our efforts in information dissemination, promotion and education
following the principles of openness, transparency, accuracy and
timeliness.  We will disseminate the benefits and correct information on
vaccination, the views of experts and details of the vaccination
programme, etc. to members of the public through various channels such as
print, electronic and social media, with a view to enabling the public to
adequately grasp the relevant information before vaccination, including
the principles, formulation, usefulness and side effects, etc.

The COVID-19 Vaccination Programme is voluntary in nature.  Given the
diverse size and role in anti-epidemic work of individual priority group
and/or Government bureau / department, publications of specific statistics
of persons vaccinated may induce unfair comparison and pressure on
priority groups and/or group members yet to be vaccinated.  

The Government will release more information on the Programme as when
available when circumstance allows to members of the public through the
public domain.
