The Hospital Authority just confirmed tonight, May 13, that a 31-year-old Filipina domestic helper remains in hospital in critical condition, more than 24 hours after collapsing at at the vaccination center at Lai Chi Kok Park.

A staff member said he expects a report on the case to be made later this evening. He declined to give any more details, but said more information would be available shortly.


According to the Hong Kong Police, a friend of the patient called them at 4:56pm yesterday to report that the patient had fainted at the vaccination center after getting a Covid-19 jab.

When the officers arrived, they found the patient unconscious and took her to Princess Margaret Hospital.

Some Filipinos who were at the scene took pictures and a video footage of the patient being taken away, obviously in distress.

One could be heard calling out the name “Gemmalyn,” as the patient was being wheeled away. Another noticed that her hands were shaking as she was put onto a hospital bed.

One of those who shared the video on Facebook reported that the patient just had her second dose of a vaccine, accompanied by the landlord in her boarding house, when she fainted.

One later reported, obviously wrongly, that the patient had died at 6:45pm after her BioNTech jab.

The latter Filipina domestic worker who claimed to live in the same boarding house said the patient had no existing illnesses.


However, a report posted last night by the online news portal Dimsum Daily, said the woman “had a record of illnesses.”

Any adverse event that occurs within 14 days after vaccination and fulfills the criteria for reporting as AEFI (Adverse Events Following Immunizaton) is immediately reported to the public.

The HA then makes a decision on whether to forward the case to the Experts Committee that makes an assessment of whether the adverse event is directly linked to vaccination.

The incident comes just one day after the Health Authority ruled out vaccination as the cause of death of another Filipina DH who collapsed at her employer’s home in Sai Kung, 18 days after receiving her first dose of the BioNTech vaccine.

The 44-year-old Filipina reportedly died of cardiac arrest after a rupture in her aorta.
