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

More jab stations commissioned

The Government announced that the COVID-19 vaccination stations set up in Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital, Tseung Kwan O Hospital, Caritas Medical Centre and Prince of Wales Hospital came into operation today.   Together with 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 increased to seven.   Patients visiting these hospitals for follow-up appointments and visitors can receive the BioNTech vaccine at the stations without prior booking.   Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip visited the vaccination station in Tuen Mun Hospital this morning to learn about its operation and listen to views from people who received the vaccination there.   In addition to noting that the Tuen Mun Hospital location is the most popular one in the first batch of stations that came into effect, Mr Nip shared that at its peak, it administers over 160 vaccine doses a day.   “As such, I would like to learn about their practical experience in person in order to better promote the services of the vaccination stations so that the services can meet the needs of the members of the public."   He pointed out that since the first batch of stations opened on September 29, they have overcome a number of difficulties.   “They have gone through the challenges related to the Black Rainstorm Warning Signal and tropical storms by making prompt responses within a short time under the co-ordination of the Central Command Centre at Central Government Offices.”   Mr Nip also attended a vaccination event for the elderly in Tuen Mun at Wu Shan Road Community Hall where participants could choose to receive the Sinovac vaccine from an outreach team on-site or take prearranged transport to get the BioNTech jab at the community vaccination centre at Yau Oi Sports Centre.   "For people who have yet to receive vaccination, in particular elderly persons, please grasp the opportunity to receive COVID-19 vaccines.   “Both COVID-19 vaccines available in Hong Kong are safe and highly effective in protecting against severe disease and death from COVID-19 infection,” he added.
