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

2nd phase of 2021 census to start

The Census & Statistics Department said today it will carry out the second phase of the 2021 Population Census data collection from July 18 to August 4.   Census officers will visit households that have yet to submit their questionnaires to conduct face-to-face interviews, but will not call on those who have already submitted the questionnaire.   The census officers, working in pairs, will wear a purple T-shirt uniform with a 2021 census badge and carry a red satchel with the census logo. They will also identify themselves with a census officer identity certificate issued by the department. Households should check their identity carefully before admitting them to their premises or providing data.   The department appealed to households to participate in the census before July 18 by responding to their questionnaires online, by phone or by post in order to reduce face-to-face contact.   It noted that as of July 8, around 710,000 households had completed the questionnaires, of which about 60% were submitted online.   It also stressed that the census data is vital for Hong Kong’s future development, and encouraged the public to participate in the census. Information collected will be kept in strict confidence and will not be disclosed to unauthorised parties.   The department added that specified people must provide the required information in the census. It is an offence to contravene the legal requirement for completing the questionnaire.
