The season of 2022-23 Seasonal Influenza Vaccination commenced on 6 October 2022. Pneumococcal vaccination for the elderly will continue throughout the year. 

A person getting influenza and COVID-19 at the same time and has a higher risk of death, and influenza vaccination may reduce the likelihood of hospitalisation and length of stay. COVID-19 vaccines can be co-administered with, or at any time before or after, SIV (including inactivated influenza vaccine, live attenuated influenza vaccines and recombinant influenza vaccine) under informed consent.

VSS 2022/23

The Vaccination Subsidy Scheme (VSS) is a scheme that provides subsidised seasonal influenza vaccination and pneumococcal vaccination to eligible Hong Kong residents through the participation of private doctors. The Government reimburses subsidy to enrolled doctors for providing vaccinations to eligible persons. On top of the Government's subsidy, enrolled doctors may impose extra charge for the vaccination.

The Scientific Committee on Vaccine Preventable Diseases under the Centre for Health Protection has made recommendations on seasonal influenza vaccination for 2022-23 season and pneumococcal vaccination to enhance immunity of high-risk persons. The latest recommendations can be viewed here.
