4 arrested for disorderly conduct

Police arrested four people after noticing that some individuals were displaying protest items that contained seditious wordings, chanting and committing unlawful acts in the vicinity of Causeway Bay since the afternoon of June 3.   Police announced the arrests in a statement and explained that upon investigation, they arrested the four individuals on suspicion of disorder in public places and doing an act or acts with seditious intention.   Additionally, four other people suspected of breaching public peace were brought to the police station for further investigation.   The force stressed that they are highly concerned about people attempting to incite and provoke others to commit illegal acts that endanger national security, public order and public safety.   Apart from stepping up patrols and enhancing intelligence-gathering, Police added that they will closely monitor the situation of various districts and strive to prevent and combat crimes. http://dlvr.it/Sq8xN8

Jab stations at 4 more hospitals set

The Government today announced that it will set up COVID-19 vaccination stations in Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital, Tseung Kwan O Hospital, Caritas Medical Centre and Prince of Wales Hospital starting October 18.   The move aims to enable patients visiting the hospital for follow-up appointments and visitors to receive the BioNTech vaccination without prior booking.   In addition to the vaccination stations in Queen Mary Hospital, Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Tuen Mun Hospital, which came into service last month, the number of vaccination stations will increase to seven.   Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip said the vaccination rate for elderly people has increased recently. However, given the threat posed by mutant strains, their vaccination rate should be raised further as they have a comparatively higher risk of falling seriously ill and dying brought by COVID-19 infection.   The Government set up vaccination stations operated by medical organisations in three public hospitals as a pilot scheme.   Mr Nip noted that in the past two weeks, an average of about 200 people received vaccination at the vaccination stations every day.   After an evaluation, the Government decided to expand the scheme to enable more seniors to receive vaccination when they have their follow-up medical consultation at specialist out-patient clinics in hospitals, he added.   The vaccination stations operate from 10am to 7pm on weekdays except public holidays and the last vaccination session is conducted at 6.30pm.   Arrangements will be made for people being vaccinated to have their second dose injection at the same vaccination station or another community vaccination centre.   For those who opt for the Sinovac vaccine, they will be referred to a nearby community vaccination centre.
