IMPORTANT: S2 vaccine mandate

Important message from Professor Ian Holliday, Vice-President & Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Teaching & Learning)

Dear colleagues and students

From Monday 17 January 2022, the first day of teaching in Semester 2, HKU will introduce a vaccine mandate. This will require everyone entering the campus to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 or, alternatively, to undergo weekly Covid-19 tests on a self-paying basis. Exemptions will be granted only to individuals with medical certificates showing they are unable to take the Covid-19 vaccine. Further details will be announced in early December. We’re writing now to enable anyone planning to get vaccinated to do so before mid-January.

Best wishes, Ian

Ian Holliday, VP/T&L
Chair, Task Force on Infectious Diseases
