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

Vaccine misinformation rejected

Chief Executive Carrie Lam today condemned those who are trying to sabotage the Government’s anti-epidemic efforts by spreading misinformation about COVID-19 vaccines.   Mrs Lam made the statement when speaking to reporters after receiving her second COVID-19 jab this morning.   “I would condemn a very small minority of people who try to sabotage our efforts by going the other way - so they are spreading fake news, misinformation and rumours on social media and also through other means.   “Especially when these people are health professionals, I am extremely disappointed, because at the end of the day if Hong Kong has a major outbreak again, the people who suffer will be our healthcare professionals, especially those working in the Hospital Authority's facilities.”   The Chief Executive also pointed out the Government has been transparent in providing information to the public concerning its vaccination programme.   “As far as the confidence of the people in receiving COVID-19 vaccinations, I think transparency and full disclosure will help boost confidence, and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government will spare no effort in raising the transparency in providing as much data as possible to the people of Hong Kong. We are now doing this on a daily basis.   “I would appeal to all to look at this issue in a scientific and objective manner and join the government vaccination programme as soon as possible.”
