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

Exam venue measures announced

The Education Bureau today announced that schools providing examination venues for this year’s Diploma of Secondary Education Examination (DSE) should suspend face-to-face classes from April 26 to 30 and May 3.   Schools may decide whether to arrange online teaching for other classes based on their school-based circumstances.   Given the volatile situation of the COVID-19 epidemic, the bureau and the Examinations & Assessment Authority have been communicating closely with the Centre for Health Protection and the education sector to ensure the DSE can start on April 23 under safe circumstances.   The new measure aims to release more classrooms for exam venues and more teachers for assuming the invigilator role, as well as complement the need to step up precautionary measures against COVID-19.   The authority will issue a letter to inform schools of the above arrangements.
