School Immunisation Teams

School Immunisation Teams

The main tasks of the School Immunisation Teams (SIT) under the Centre for Health Protection (CHP) are:

  1. providing immunisation services to Primary One students, Primary Five female students, and Primary Six students in Hong Kong under Hong Kong Childhood Immunisation Programme (HKCIP) of the Department of Health (DH);
  2. providing mop-up for primary school students who have not completed immunisation recommended under HKCIP (including students who have newly arrived in Hong Kong and students who have missed the visits by SIT); and
  3. promoting information on immunisation to students, school staff, and parents, and strengthening their understanding of vaccine-preventable diseases. 

Mode of Operation

Each year, SIT visit Hong Kong Primary Schools for two immunisation campaigns, namely "Combined Diphtheria, Tetanus, acellular Pertussis and Inactivated Poliovirus Vaccination Campaign" and "Measles, Mumps, Rubella and Chickenpox/ Human Papillomavirus (HPV Vaccine also known as cervical cancer vaccine, only for female students) Vaccination Campaign". During the two campaigns, Hepatitis B Vaccine mop-up will be provided to Primary Six students who have not received 3 doses of Hepatitis B Vaccine on schedule.

In addition to visiting primary schools to provide students with vaccination, there are sub-offices under SIT for mop-up vaccination for students who have not yet completed immunisation recommended under HKCIP (By appointment).

eHealth Registration and electronic health record

Parents can help arrange for their children to register with eHealth, so that their children can start building up an electronic immunisation record (as well as a personal lifelong electronic health record) from an early age and acquire coherent healthcare services as they grow up.  The vaccination records of various government vaccination programmes can be stored and accessed via the "eHealth" mobile application for flexible use as necessary in daily life, thereby saving the trouble of handling paper records and avoiding the risk of losing such records.  Please visit the website or call the eHealth hotline at 3467 6300 for more details or making enquiries about eHealth. The hotline service runs from 9am to 9pm, from Monday to Friday (except public holidays).
