Measles vaccine

 

Eligible foreign domestic workers can get free measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccines from designated clinics and outreach programs across Hong Kong until Nov. 15, the HK Department of Health said.

The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) said eligible FDHs should make a booking for the vaccination and bring their employment contract/working visa and Hong Kong identity card/passport on their appointment day.

It said persons with laboratory evidence of immunity (i.e. tested positive for measles immunoglobulin G) do not require MMR vaccination.

Foreign domestic helpers working in Hong Kong who do not have laboratory evidence of immunity and fulfil the following criteria are eligible for free MMR vaccination:

(1) Born in or after 1967, and have not received two doses of measles vaccination before, and did not have laboratory confirmed measles infection; or

(2) Have laboratory evidence of testing non-immune to measles (i.e. tested negative/indeterminate for measles immunoglobulin G).
