Dear Primary Care Provider,
DH reiterates that influenza vaccination is safe and effective

In response to media enquiries regarding remarks about the effectiveness of influenza vaccines that have appeared on the Internet, the Department of Health (DH) has issued press release today, emphasizing that seasonal influenza vaccination is a safe and effective way of preventing influenza and its complications.  Moreover, influenza vaccination can reduce influenza-associated hospitalisation and death.  This season’s vaccine strains closely match the influenza viruses that are circulating this winter influenza season in Hong Kong.  DH also reiterates that influenza vaccine has undergone repeated testing and quality assessment to ensure that it is safe and reliable.

Please read DH’s press release at http://www.info.gov.hk/gia/general/201802/08/P2018020800560.htm?fontSize=1

Thank you for your efforts in combating communicable diseases.

Dr. Joan YU 
Primary Care Office

就網上流傳流感疫苗無效的言論,衞生署今日已發出新聞公報,強調接種季節性流感疫苗是預防流感及其併發症的安全和有效方法,可減低入院留醫和死亡風險。本季疫苗抗原與香港目前流行的流感病毒吻合。另外,衞生署亦重申流感疫苗經反覆試驗和品質檢測,非常安全可靠。

新聞公報已上載於政府網頁(http://www.info.gov.hk/gia/general/201802/08/P2018020800557.htm)。

感謝閣下支持及協助控制傳染病。
