Abstract
Key Messages 1. Influenza vaccination of elderly people living in the community was cost-effective from a societal perspective but did not cut publicly funded medical costs or total medical costs. 2. For the oldest group (≥75 years) living in the community, influenza vaccination can cut publicly funded medical costs if the total vaccination cost per head is HK$39.6 or less. 3. Influenza vaccination is costeffective if the value of increasing an elderly person’s lifespan for a year at most is measured as HK$68 047 or more.
