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

$20.8b deficit recorded

The Government announced today it recorded a $20.8 billion deficit for the two months ending May 31.   Expenditure for the period was $97.1 billion and revenue was $76.3 billion.   The Government said there was a deficit mainly because some major types of revenue including salaries and profits taxes are mostly received towards the end of a financial year.   Fiscal reserves stood at $907 billion at the end of May.
