We would like to address concerns you may have following the announcement made by the Department of Health on the suspension of the use of a batch of quadrivalent seasonal influenza vaccines (box label: R3J721V; syringe label: R3J72), our Pharmacy DID NOT stock the affected batch of flu vaccines, and our seasonal flu vaccination service is offered as normal at our Outpatient Department as well as our downtown clinics.
Influenza vaccination is effective in preventing influenza and reducing influenza-associated complications. A routine annual influenza vaccination is recommended for individuals aged 6 months and above who do not have contraindications.
The government has expanded the coverage of the Vaccination Subsidy Scheme for the winter flu season this year. Vaccination Subsidy Scheme applies for eligible groups with our enrolled doctors.
