The influenza season is about to begin. We should help elderly to prevent contracting the illness. Seasonal Influenza vaccination is one of the effective and safe means to prevent seasonal influenza and its complications. It reduces influenza related hospitalisation and death. Since it takes about two weeks after vaccination for the body to develop antibodies to protect against the influenza virus infection, it is advised to get vaccinated at least two weeks before the start of the influenza season.

The Elderly Health Centre’s Government Vaccination Programme 2020/21 commenced on 22 October 2020. From 2 November 2020, Elderly Health Centre non-members can receive seasonal influenza vaccination service at 15 Elderly Health Centres. For details, please refer to Government Vaccination Programme 2020/21 in Elderly Health Centres.
