    Meningitis C and Hib immunisation for babies in Hong Kong

    I'm considering going using private healthcare for son's immunisations, as with the public system they miss out on an immunisation which they give in the UK (Hib).

    Does anyone know if Hib is available as a seperate vacine here in Hong Kong? It's normally adminitered as part of a part of a combined 5 in 1 vaccine (with Diphtheria, Pertussis, Polio & Tetanus).

    Is Meningitis C available at all? Or will I have to get the immunisation's for this done when I go back to the UK?

    Do most people use the package at the Matilda? Are there any other packages available in Hong Kong Island? Do any of you use a GP to give immunisations in Hong Kong? Or is it just a Paediatrician's?

    Without my baby book don't know about the Hib injection but I had my 2 year old vaccinated against Men C before I came back to the UK. Had it done at my doctors (Owens & Trodd on D'Aguilar Street in Central). Men C not done as routine in HK.
