Revised vaccination requirements and applicable age of Vaccine Pass

The HKSAR Government has decided to revise the existing Vaccine Pass arrangements in two phases. These new arrangements are going to affect those aged 5 to 11 and those aged 12 or above.

Persons aged 5 to 11

Effective from 30 September 2022, persons aged 5 to 11 need to fulfil the vaccination requirements of the Vaccine Pass by having received either the second dose of vaccine, or the first dose of vaccine in the past three months from the day of entering a church.

Effective from 30 November 2022, persons aged 5 to 11 should have received the second dose of vaccine in order to comply with vaccination requirements of the Vaccine Pass.

A person aged 5 to 11 needs not produce their Vaccine Pass QR code on their own smart phone. A paper record printed with the QR code or a photo of the QR code saved on a mobile phone may be used instead. A parent may also show a child’s QR code together with one’s own using the eHealth or LeaveHomeSafe mobile application.

Persons aged 12 or above

Effective from 30 September 2022, persons aged 12 or above need to fulfil the vaccination requirements of the Vaccine Pass by having received either the third dose of vaccine, or the second dose of vaccine in the past five months (rather than six months) from the day of entering a church.

Effective from 30 November 2022, persons aged 12 or above should have received the third dose of vaccine in order to comply with vaccination requirements of the Vaccine Pass.

Churches are asked to inform their members of these new requirements and encourage them to make suitable arrangements ahead of the effective date.
