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

CE condemns attack on police officer

Chief Executive Carrie Lam today strongly condemned an attack on a police officer causing serious injuries and she wished the officer a speedy recovery.   At 10.05pm yesterday, the police officer was attacked from behind outside 555 Hennessy Road in Wan Chai. The suspect then stabbed himself in the chest with the same knife which he used in the attack.   The officer was sent to hospital for treatment. Secretary for Security Tang Ping-keung went to the hospital to offer his support.   The suspected attacker was rushed to another hospital with a serious chest injury and he was later certified dead.   Mrs Lam and Chief Secretary John Lee strongly condemned violence and acts that undermine public order. They sent their regards to the injured officer and wished him a speedy recovery.   Both of them also expressed concern over various incidents in Hong Kong yesterday that were suspected to be illegal and undermined public order. They condemned such acts which breach the peace and challenge the authority of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.   The Chief Executive said that after going through months of riots in the second half of 2019, the people of Hong Kong abhor violence and treasure the stability of society since the implementation of the National Security Law last year.   Mrs Lam said she fully supports Police in taking resolute actions against violent and illegal acts to maintain law and order as well as to safeguard people's life and property.
