COVID-19 Pre-Vaccination Health Assessment
The guidelines of the Centre for Health Protection (CHP) stated that people with severe chronic diseases should defer COVID-19 vaccinations until medical condition is in better control, including those with hypertension, diabetes and hyperlipidemia. Many people do not participate in health screening regularly and may have developed chronic disease unconsciously. Virtus Medical has launched the “COVID-19 Pre-Vaccination Health Assessment” to screen the risk factors for individuals before COVID-19 vaccination and the report will be analysed by medical doctors.

- Persons with previous severe allergic reactions to vaccine (e.g. acute anaphylaxis, angioedema, dyspnea, etc.), unless advised by specialists in Immunology and Allergy (COVID-19 Pre-Vaccination Allergy Test)
- Persons with severe neurological conditions (e.g. transverse myelitis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, demyelinating disease, etc.)

Under what circumstances should COVID-19 vaccination be deferred?
CHP also recommends individuals with the following conditions should defer COVID-19 vaccination until their medical condition is in better control, including:

Guidelines also suggest that evidence of clinical disease should be taken into account for assessment when dyslipidaemia alone is encountered. Notwithstanding individual assessment, patients with recent acute myocardial infraction or stroke should defer vaccination for generally 3 to 6 months with good recovery and stable control.
