Get COVID-19 jabs: SJ

The rapidly changing situation of the fifth wave of the epidemic starting from January with the highly transmissible variant spreading to community has aroused grave public concern, including the legal sector. The Judiciary will step up precautionary measures to ensure that courts will be able to continue to operate safely. I would like to take this opportunity to appeal to all legal professionals to lead by example and fulfil their civic responsibilities in receiving a COVID-19 vaccination.   In light of the latest situation, the Judiciary announced that new jury proceedings and death inquests involving juries scheduled will generally be adjourned while all other court hearings will in general continue to proceed as scheduled. Court users, including members of the public observing court proceedings, are advised to share the responsibilities by adhering to the anti-epidemic measures implemented by the Judiciary and getting vaccinated. These measures not only protect oneself, but also protect the health and safety of judicial officers, relevant parties and others in courts.   To combat the epidemic, the Government has been strongly appealing to and encouraging the public to get vaccinated with a view to protecting the community. The Government provides a variety of channels to enable members of the public to receive vaccination conveniently, including extending vaccination services at Hospital COVID-19 Vaccination Stations, setting up additional community vaccination centres, arranging private doctors or clinics as well as service locations operated by private healthcare institutions for vaccination. I urge those who have not yet received vaccination to get vaccinated as soon as possible to protect themselves and others.   Secretary for Justice Teresa Cheng wrote this article and posted it on her blog on February 27.
