Patrick Nip visits AXA

Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip today visited AXA Hong Kong & Macau to view the administering of COVID-19 vaccines.   About 360 staff and agents of the enterprise will receive either a Sinovac or BioNTech vaccine during a two-day outreach vaccination service by the Government.   Mr Nip said the Government welcomes enterprises to join hands with it in promoting the Early Vaccination for All campaign and encourages their employees to support the vaccination programme to protect the health of themselves, colleagues and clients.   He also hoped that people who get vaccinated will encourage their families and friends to do the same as a way to help build an immune barrier in Hong Kong.   He called on the public to get vaccinated as early as possible, noting that the vaccination programme is already offering more quotas for people to make bookings, and same-day tickets for vaccinations will be distributed to seniors aged 70 or above starting tomorrow.   Elderly peop

10k vaccinated by private doctors

Around 10,000 citizens have received the Sinovac vaccine through private doctors as at 4pm, the Department of Health announced today.   The department explained that starting March 1, it has been distributing the first batch of the Sinovac vaccines to private doctors and clinics participating in the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme.   The relevant private doctors and clinics began providing vaccination to the public from March 2.   So far about 1,350 private doctors have joined the vaccination programme.   The list of private doctors and clinics who have placed orders for the vaccines has been uploaded on the programme’s website and will be updated in a timely manner.   The department said the Government will strive to ensure private doctors are provided with sufficient vaccine doses to meet the public’s needs.   It also noted that it will co-ordinate the delivery of the vaccines and monitor the usage situation.
