Enterprise backs outreach jab service

Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip visited AIA Hong Kong & Macau today to view the administering of the BioNTech vaccine to about 400 people as arranged by the Government's outreach vaccination service.   Mr Nip said it is encouraging that various enterprises have joined the Government in promoting the Early Vaccination for All campaign and called on their employees to receive vaccination.   He hopes that vaccinated citizens will also encourage their family members and friends to get the jab to help build an immune barrier in Hong Kong.   The outreach vaccination programme has received enthusiastic support since its launch, with vaccination services provided for the Hong Kong Sports Institute, global professional services enterprises, property developers, financial institutions and more. http://dlvr.it/S4y8xb

Private doctors order 170k jabs

As of today, more than 1,200 doctors joining the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme have approached the Department of Health to place orders for more than 170,000 doses of vaccine.   The department said the programme has been running smoothly since its launch. It started distributing the Sinovac vaccine to private doctors and clinics participating in the programme under the Vaccination Subsidy Scheme on March 1.   Around 160,000 doses of vaccine have been delivered to doctors' clinics and about 53,000 citizens have received their first dose of the Sinovac vaccine from private doctors and clinics participating in the programme.   The department has completed over 1,500 doctors’ enrolment applications, involving more than 2,100 clinics.   The list of participating private doctors and clinics that have made vaccine orders has been uploaded here.   People can choose and make an appointment for vaccination directly with a private doctor or clinic under the programme without going through the Government online booking system.    The public can also learn more about the Sinovac vaccine by reading this fact sheet and visiting the designated webpage.
