Position Statement: COVID-19 Vaccination

Allowing more Hong Kong citizens to be administered with safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines is crucial to minimize the spread of the disease, hospitalization, and deaths. Vaccination is well-proved and undoubtedly the essential weapon to fight against the virus and utmost element for the resumption of the normal ways of life in Hong Kong.

Emergency Nurses always stand on the frontline to monitor and screen patients for any potential infectious disease according to their general health conditions, immunization status, recent travel history, and exposure to ill persons, etc. Protection of patients, colleagues, family members, and Hong Kong citizens from infectious diseases is one of our responsibilities and missions.

The Hong Kong College of Emergency Nursing (HKCEN) encourages all its Fellows, members, and emergency nurses as well as Hong Kong citizens to be vaccinated against COVID-19, unless medically contraindicated. We can protect ourselves, family members, patients, and Hong Kong citizens against COVID-19 by receiving timely vaccination. We believe that we can achieve community immunity if a large proportion of the local citizens being vaccinated. Most importantly, emergency nurses can be role models to the public and help to stop the wave of local COVID-19 outbreaks by receiving vaccination as soon as possible.

Let’s go for it!
