Many Hong Kongers are travel-lovers. For people of the green-aged group, travelling with friends is pretty common. However, visiting various countries may need vaccination records and negative COVID-19 results due to the epidemic, making travelling more difficult. If you plan to travel, you can use the ehealth
and iAM Smart
systems to check electronic vaccination records upon requirement.
A system developed by the HKSAR government, the Electronic Health Record Sharing System (eHealth), provides an electronic platform that aims to build up free and lifelong electronic health records for Hong Kong citizens. As a result, healthcare providers and professionals can access participants’ health records when it is needed. These sharable data include personal identification and demographic data, allergies and adverse drug reactions, diagnosis, procedures and medication, encounters/appointments, clinical notes/summaries, birth and immunisation records, laboratory and radiology reports, other investigation reports and healthcare referrals.
The electronic health record has the participant’s birth and immunisation information, including details of all the vaccines taken.
