January 20, 2023

The Department of Health announced today that in view of the reduction in demand of high-risk target groups for vaccination of Mpox, two of the designated vaccination centres will cease operation from January 30 onwards.


These two centres are at Yau Ma Tei Jockey Club Polyclinic and Tang Chi Ngong Specialist Clinic in Wan Chai. People who have made appointments for the vaccinations will be notified of the adjustments.


The booking and enquiry line 2547 1900 and booking email: for Mpox vaccination will also cease operation.


Starting from January 30, high-risk target groups can receive Mpox walk-in vaccination at six social hygiene service clinics (SocHS) of the department.


They are Wan Chai Male SocHS, Wan Chai Female SocHS, Yau Ma Tei Male SocHS, Yung Fung Shee SocHS, Fanling SocHS and Tuen Mun SocHS. Fees will apply for non-eligible people.


Additionally, the integrated treatment centre in Kowloon Bay and the special medical clinics at Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Princess Margaret Hospital will continue to provide Mpox vaccination service for their clients.


The Mpox vaccination programme for high-risk groups began on October 5 last year. By January 16, more than 6,900 doses of the vaccine had been administered.
