Vaccination is the most effective measure to stop the spread of the virus and prevent severe cases, hospitalisation, and death. In response to the severe situation of the COVID-19 epidemic, CU Medicine initiated the community vaccination programme, hoping to help further increase the vaccination rate, particularly that of young children.
During the period of March to May 2022, over 400 medical alumni and students volunteered in the vaccination programme for reaching out districts such as Kowloon City, Sham Shui Po, Kwun Tong and Lantau Island, and giving out 3,000 Sinovac vaccinations to safeguard the school children, the elderly, or the people of less mobility in the districts.
