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

Lei Tung testing centre to open

The additional community testing centre set up at Lei Tung Community Hall in Southern District will start service at 2pm tomorrow, taking the number of community testing centres that provide testing services to 21.   The new Lei Tung community testing centre will operate until the end of April tentatively.   Community testing centres provide self-paid testing services for the public at a more affordable price to serve the general community or private purposes such as certification for travelling or work. The price of the testing services is capped at $240.   The Government would also conduct necessary testing for targeted groups, specified people or other citizens at the testing centres for public health reasons on a need basis.   Community testing centres have come into service in phases since November 15 last year. As at March 16, these centres had provided around 1.99 million tests, of which over 1,070 samples or 0.05% tested preliminary positive and were referred to the Centre for Health Protection for confirmatory tests.   Booking and walk-in services are available. The testing centres would accord priority to individuals with advance bookings. The public may also call the testing centres in advance to enquire about the availability of bookings or walk-in quotas.   People of certain targeted groups, local residents and staff subject to compulsory testing, as well as those with a LeaveHomeSafe COVID-19 exposure notification may be tested for free at community testing centres. They must register through the booking system and those without bookings will need to pay the testing fee.   The public can also undergo COVID-19 testing through other channels.   Those with symptoms should seek medical attention immediately and not go to the community testing centres.
