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

Power plant operations safe

Secretary for Security John Lee today said Taishan Nuclear Power Station is operating within nuclear power safety requirements and that the release of operational information complies with international standards.   Having maintained close contact with Guangdong's Nuclear Emergency Committee Office as well as the National Nuclear Safety Administration, Mr Lee made it clear the power plant is safe.   “We have been given the information that the operation of the Taishan nuclear plant is safe and there is no indication of any effect on the environment. So it is operating within all the requirements regarding nuclear power safety.   “All the information that is released will be in accordance with the international standard.”   He added that only two incidents occurred at Taishan Nuclear Power Station this year, both of which were classified as Level 0 events that did not affect the unit’s safe operation, workers’ health, the nearby communities or the environment.   “In other words, they do not affect, in any way, nuclear safety,” Mr Lee stressed.
