Jab mobile station set

The Government will launch the COVID-19 Mobile Vaccination Station on December 3 to enable members of the public, in particular the elderly, to receive a COVID-19 vaccination at their gathering places in the community.   The station will first provide services to people residing in the vicinity of Sun Chui Estate in Sha Tin.   The procedures of receiving a vaccination on the vaccination vehicle are the same as that in community vaccination centres.   There will be temporary waiting and resting areas at open spaces next to the vaccination vehicle, and free medical consultation services will be available to people who plan to get vaccinated on the spot.   The vaccination vehicle is equipped with a wheelchair lift for people with impaired mobility to receive vaccination.   Only one type of vaccine, either the BioNTech or the Sinovac one, will be provided at the vaccination vehicle.   Members of the public can receive their first, second or third dose of vaccination at the mobi

Alert issued on fraudulent calls

Customs today appealed to the public to stay alert to deception-related phone calls purporting to be made by the department.   Customs noted that it recently received several public enquiries about receiving phone calls from +852 2815 7711, which is the same number as its general enquiry hotline, or from other local mobile phone numbers.   The caller claimed to be a Customs officer, saying that the called party's mail parcel or cargo consignment was seized by the department as contraband items were found inside it.   Some of the calls were subsequently transferred to another scammer posing as a non-local law enforcement officer.   Customs clarified that it did not make such calls, adding it has reported the incident to Police.   It reminded the public that officers will provide relevant information to verify the identity of both parties if they need to contact them and will not request sensitive personal information nor transfer the call to non-local law enforcement agencies.
