Updated information on Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and vaccines

1. COVID-19 Vaccination Programme further extends to cover all eligible visitors

At present, there are over 2 000 other visitors who are holding valid travel documents and have to continue to stay in Hong Kong owing to the COVID-19 epidemic. On public health considerations, providing vaccination for these other visitors will help prevent the spread of the virus in the community and thus enhance Hong Kong's overall anti-epidemic capability.

From July 6, they can bring their travel documents and the landing slips or extension of stay labels (applicable to other visitors with extension of stay) issued by the Immigration Department to any post office (except mobile post offices) during office hours and the staff will assist them in making appointments for completing two doses of vaccination in the Community Vaccination Centres within their limit of stay.

2. Update on monitoring vaccination

As at June 27, the Expert Committee on Clinical Events Assessment Following COVID-19 Immunisation had concluded that six death cases had no causal relationship with vaccination, and preliminarily considered that 15 cases were not associated with vaccination. One case was pending assessment. The Expert Committee considered that there is no unusual pattern identified so far, and will continue to closely monitor the relevant situation and collect data for assessment.

Based on statistical analysis, there is no evidence that vaccination increases the risk of death or miscarriage for recipients.

The majority of non-death cases of adverse events received so far are relatively minor cases.
