Dear Sir or Madam,

The twelve Members, including the Convenor, of the Advisory Panel on COVID-19 Vaccines[1] – and particularly the four “experts with rich experience in public health, epidemiology and clinical aspects” who joined “an expert group to provide professional advice to the Chief Executive and the HKSAR Government”[2] directly or indirectly wield enormous power over the livelihoods and quality of life of all Hong Kong residents.

Please provide information on the twelve Members’:
1. Financial and Other Interests – in particular all sources of funding not directly from the HKSARG “public purse”, including:
a. Remunerated directorships in any public or private company
b. Remunerated Employments, Offices, Trades, Professions, etc
c. Land and property owned in Hong Kong or outside Hong Kong, including those for self-occupation
d. Name of Companies (both listed and unlisted) in which the Member has, to his knowledge, a beneficial interest in shareholdings of a nominal value greater than 1% of the issued share capital
2. Affiliation with Political Parties
3. Membership of Boards, Committees and Organisations which might be construed by members of the public as a declaratory interest, e.g. WHO, GAVI, the Vaccine Alliance etc.

The information should be provided in the same format as the Executive Council’s Register of the President’s and Members’ Interests[3] and should follow the same rules and guidelines that apply to that register.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Jackson.

Dear Paul,
 
I refer to your request for information under the Code on Access to
Information dated 13 August 2021 to the Chief Executive’s Office on
Declaration of Interests made by members of the Advisory Panel on COVID-19
Vaccines (the Advisory Panel).
 
With your consent, the request has been referred to this Bureau on 20
August 2021 for a reply. I am authorised to reply as follows.
 
​The Government published the Prevention and Control of Disease (Use of
Vaccines) Regulation (Cap. 599K) (the Regulation) in the Gazette on 23
December 2020, which provides the legal framework under the present state
of public health emergency to bring in COVID-19 vaccines which satisfy the
criteria of safety, efficacy and quality for emergency use.
 
The Regulation empowers the Secretary for Food and Health to, based on the
objective clinical data of a COVID-19 vaccine (including third phase
clinical research data), with reference to the expert advice of an
independent advisory panel and having regard to the approval given by a
regulatory authority in a place outside Hong Kong that performs the
function of approving pharmaceutical products (including emergency use),
after being assessed as safe and effective based on science, and with
evidence supporting its quality, authorize and allow the specified use of
the relevant COVID-19 vaccine in Hong Kong under the emergency situation.
 
The Government has set up the Advisory Panel, with members appointed by
the Chief Executive. The Advisory Panel provides expert advice on
recommendation of authorization of the vaccines to the Government, which
is made available for public information.
 
According to the meeting procedures endorsed by the Advisory Panel,
members shall report/declare any actual/potential/perceived conflict of
interests related to applications for authorisation of vaccines under the
Regulation. The relevant declarations are attached at Annex for your
reference.
 
[See attachment "Annex.pdf"]
 
With a view to strengthening the transparency of information regarding
vaccines, the expert advice on vaccines given by the Advisory Panel has
been uploaded to the website of the Food and Health Bureau
([1]https://www.fhb.gov.hk/en/our_work/healt...).
 
Please contact us by e-mail at [2][email address] if you have any
enquiry. Thank you.
