Safeguarding public health has long been HKUMed’s core mission, from the 1894 Taipingshan plague to COVID-19. Our health care professionals and scientists have been at the forefront in the battle against COVID-19 since the very beginning of the pandemic. Now, we are supporting the most important phase of pandemic control by operating one of the designated community vaccination centres.

We are responsible for a Community Vaccination Centre where we will administer the COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine: Comirnaty (BNT 162b2) from Fosun Pharma/BioNTech.

At the same time, we are also carrying out lifesaving research into further ensuring the safety and effectiveness of vaccines, to give added protection for those who choose to enrol in our research programmes and more broadly to advance the science of vaccinology against COVID-19. We are recruiting volunteers for vaccination research studies that will produce new knowledge for the next stage of COVID-19 control.

Starting from 9 November 2022, “HKU Community Vaccination Centre at Gleneagles Hospital Hong Kong” provides Fosun/BioNTech Comirnaty vaccination to eligible persons aged 12 or above on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. “HKU Children Community Vaccination Centre at Gleneagles Hospital Hong Kong” provides Fosun/BioNTech Comirnaty vaccination to children aged 6 months to 4 on Tuesdays and Sundays, and to children aged 5 to 11 on Thursdays and Saturdays.

Starting from 10 October 2022, the Centre also offers free seasonal influenza vaccination (SIV) to eligible Hong Kong residents aged 50 or above when they are there for COVID-19 vaccination.
