Government Pays Out Record Compensation for Covid-19 Vaccine Deaths

The Hong Kong government paid out HK$2.2 million in compensation from its Covid-19 Vaccine Compensation Fund, the highest payout so far. The compensation went to the family of a 74-year-old man who died shortly after receiving his first dose of the Comirnaty vaccine last year.

Health authorities confirmed the man died from acute heart attack and severe allergic shock. Though they could not conclusively determine a causal link between the death and the vaccine dose. The compensation fund committee still approved the payout.

Previously, the fund paid HK$2 million to the family of a 66-year-old woman who passed away following her Comirnaty shot last year. The recent HK$2.2 million payout marks the largest compensation amount from the temporary fund so far.

“For those at low risk of infection, 3 doses are sufficient. We want to focus resources on high-risk groups,” said the government health expert. “Epidemic prevention has advanced to a new phase. Non-high-risk individuals who've had 3 doses can decide themselves if they pay for re-vaccination.”

The government set up the HK$5 billion Vaccine Compensation Fund to provide financial support to those seriously injured or families of those dead following government-promoted COVID-19 vaccinations. While the fund has approved multiple payouts, health officials stress that no link has been conclusively proven between any cases and the vaccines.

The government maintains its position that COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective, while health experts continue monitoring for anyside effects. Non-high-risk groups are not currently recommended for additional jabs though some may opt to pay for re-vaccination if they choose. The fund payouts signal the government's commitment to ensure public trust in its vaccination program.
