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

Group gatherings exemption revised

The Government today gazetted the amendments to relevant regulations on prevention and control of disease to adjust the scope of exempted group gatherings under the vaccine bubble, which will take effect on June 24.   The amendments also provide the legal framework to implement the relevant infection prevention and control measures on cruises when “cruise-to-nowhere” itineraries are resumed.   Announced yesterday, the adjustments to the scope of exempted group gatherings under the Prevention & Control of Disease (Prohibition on Group Gathering) Regulation have been approved by the Executive Council today.   In addition, the Government announced in May that “cruise-to-nowhere” itineraries can resume from the end of July at the earliest when cruise companies strictly comply with a set of health control protocols.   To this end, the Prevention & Control of Disease (Requirements & Directions) (Business & Premises) Regulation was amended to incorporate cruise ships into the list of scheduled premises.   This would allow the Government to impose restrictions and requirements to the operational mode of cruise ships, including the relevant infection control measures.
