Flu jab booking set

Community vaccination centres (CVCs) in various districts will offer free seasonal influenza vaccination (SIV) to Hong Kong residents aged 50 or above when they are there for COVID-19 vaccination starting from October 6.   The Government announced today that eligible people can make reservations for receiving both COVID-19 vaccination and SIV through the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme booking system starting from 9am tomorrow.   They may also choose to receive the free SIV on site when they are receiving the COVID-19 jab starting from October 6.   Given that local seasonal influenza activity has been staying at low levels since February 2020, the overall immunity against influenza in the community is at present relatively low, the Government noted.   As the winter flu season is approaching, citizens are strongly urged to complete the recommended dosage of COVID-19 vaccines and the latest seasonal influenza vaccine as early as possible to obtain better protection in the event of

T•PARK marks 5th anniversary

The Environmental Protection Department today said online programmes will be held to celebrate T•PARK’s fifth anniversary.   T•PARK, Hong Kong’s first large-scale waste-to-energy facility, has received nearly 280,000 visitors since its opening in May 2016.   The department says online programmes will promote the contributions of waste-to-energy and encourage the public to adopt a low-carbon lifestyle by practising the habits of use less, waste less and upcycling.   Two online workshops will run on May 22 for pre-registered participants to experience the fun of recycling and turning waste into resources.   T•PARK has also invited five people from various sectors as ambassadors for its anniversary events. The ambassadors will share tips on practising a low-carbon lifestyle and encourage the public to adopt green habits.   Additionally, the T•FASHION Competition, a parent-child activity, encourages parents to cultivate their children’s awareness of reducing waste.   Visit T•PARK’s Facebook page for details.   T•PARK is an integrated sludge treatment facility which combines advanced technologies with an environmental education centre and a recreational complex.   Since its commissioning, the facility has generated more than 270 million kilowatt-hours of electricity and has reduced greenhouse gas emission by up to 760,000 tonnes. This realises the vision of waste reduction, resources circulation, zero landfill in the Waste Blueprint for Hong Kong 2035 and complements the city’s target for achieving carbon neutrality by 2050.   Visit T•PARK’s website to book a visit, or call 2910 9700 or email info@tpark.hk for enquiries.
