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

Hill fire drill held

An inter-departmental vegetation fire and mountain rescue exercise was held on Lantau Island today.   The drill aimed to enhance co-ordination, communication, command and control as well as logistical support capabilities among different departments and organisations during large-scale hill fire and mountain rescue operations.   It also helped test the effectiveness and co-operation of different emergency formations during fire-fighting and rescue operations.   About 40 Fire Services Department (FSD) members took part in the on-site exercise conducted along the hiking trail from Pak Mong to Por Kai Shan, together with members from the Police Force and the Government Flying Service.   Other participating departments and organisations joined the table-top exercise at the same time.   The FSD urged the public not to leave any ignition source while taking part in hiking activities, adding that they should evacuate to a safe place in the face of a vegetation fire.
