[1] 世界衞生組織 – 世界免疫周





26 April 2022

World Immunization Week


24 – 30 April is the World Immunization Week designated by the World Health Organization.  This year, the Week is themed with “Long Life for All”, to encourage people of all ages across countries, to get vaccinated.  Gems and viruses are all around us, only with effective vaccination, we can stay away with the preventable diseases and prolong our lives1.


The Hong Kong Medical Association would like to take this opportunity to urge those who have not been vaccinated or not yet completed their vaccination schedule of COVID-19, especially elderly and children, to complete their vaccination as soon as possible, so that they are well-protected and well-prepared for the next pandemic wave.


The Hong Kong Medical Association will launch a new campaign on adult immunization shortly.  We will provide more information about vaccine-preventable diseases through the campaign.  Stay tune with us for further announcement.
