    Vaccine Requirements for Primary School

    Hello. I am moving from the US this summer and cannot seem to find out if there are any vaccine requirements for the various schools. I want to be prepared in case we need to get any additional ones before we move. Does anyone know?

    Thanks,
    Michelle

    Hi, you will have to prove that your child has been vaccinated with the HK vaccine schedule as issued by the HK health depart.

    New born- BCG (for babies born in HK)
    Polio
    Hep B

    2 Months- 6 in 1 vaccination (DTaP, Hib and Polio)

    4 months- DtAP, Hib, Polio

    6 months- DtAP, Hib, Polio

    12-15 months- MMR

    18 months- DTaP, Hib, Polio

    4-5 years- DtaP, Polio, MMR booster

    As far as I know most HK schs require proof of these vaccinations before admitting a child.
