More HZMB private car quotas set

The governments of Hong Kong and Macau have agreed to increase the regular quotas for Hong Kong cross-boundary non-commercial private cars using the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge to Macau, the Transport Department announced today.   The decision was made to enhance traffic flow between Hong Kong and Macau, better utilising the bridge, the department said.   It will increase the Hong Kong quota by 1,000, following the earlier quota allocation of 1,800 for Hong Kong.   The additional quota will be distributed in two phases from the second quarter.   Half of the additional 1,000 quota allocations is for company applicants and the other half is for individual applicants. The quotas are valid for no more than three years. The eligibility criteria of quota applications remains the same.   Private cars allocated with Hong Kong quotas will be permitted to access the city of Macau multiple times using the bridge.   The Hong Kong quota allotments will be re-allocated upon expiry thro

Priority groups get vaccinated

The Government today arranged around 200 people in the vaccination priority groups to receive their COVID-19 jabs at the Community Vaccination Centre in the Central Library’s Exhibition Gallery.   Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip, together with Secretary for Food & Health Prof Sophia Chan and Secretary for Transport & Housing Frank Chan, visited the vaccination centre.   Mr Nip said those who took part today could encourage others to get vaccinated early, with a view to protecting themselves and others.   The vaccination is free of charge. Those in the priority groups who have made reservations can get inoculated at five community vaccination centres and 18 Hospital Authority general outpatient clinics from February 26.   Private doctors participating in the vaccination programme will also administer the Sinovac vaccine for priority groups in early March.
