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

Voucher collection deadline extended

The Government announced today that it will extend the deadline for Octopus card users to tap their cards for collecting consumption vouchers to September 30, 2022.   The original arrangement requires people who collect the vouchers via Octopus to tap their cards to collect the vouchers within three months after the disbursement date of each instalment as the uncollected voucher value will become invalid after the deadline.   Hence, those who were disbursed with the first vouchers on August 1 via Octopus cards must tap their cards to collect the vouchers by October 31.   As a small number of people have not yet tapped their cards to collect the vouchers and in view of the same situation possibly occurring again, the collection period will be extended to September 30, 2022 regardless of batches and instalments.   The arrangement aims to spare the public the need to calculate the collection periods for vouchers disbursed at different times.   This change will not affect the other existing arrangements for disbursing vouchers via Octopus to eligible people, the Government added.   Click here or call 18 5000 to enquire about the Consumption Voucher Scheme.
