7k people vaccinated

About 7,000 people received their first doses of the vaccine under the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme today, the Government announced.   A cumulative total of about 13,600 people have been vaccinated since February 22, it said.   The Government called on the citizens of the five priority groups to get vaccinated early so that the economy and people’s way of life could return to normal as soon as possible.   Getting vaccinated protects not only yourself but also family members and friends and will help reduce the risk of a community outbreak, it added. http://dlvr.it/Rtd2BK

Living subsidy applications to open

The Community Care Fund will start accepting applications from two-person households for the One-off Living Subsidy for Low-income Households Not Living in Public Housing & Not Receiving Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA) Programme tomorrow.   The fund launched the second round of the programme on January 4 to relieve the financial pressure on low-income households.   Beneficiaries should currently be renting accommodation on a monthly basis or for longer tenures in private housing, industrial buildings, commercial buildings or social housing operated by non-governmental organisations (NGOs).   People renting bedspaces offered under the Home Affairs Department's Singleton Hostel Programme or bedspaces in hostels operated by NGOs for rehabilitated offenders, residing in temporary housing as well as those living on board vessels or are homeless can also apply.   They should not be receiving CSSA or own any property in Hong Kong and their monthly income must not exceed $22,000.   Their monthly rent for private housing, industrial buildings, commercial buildings or social housing should not exceed $11,000.   Eligible households that benefited from the first round of the programme which was launched between July 2 and November 30 last year, can also apply for the second round. The fund will accept applications from three-person households from March 1 and all households from April 1. Applications can be submitted until May 31.   Call 2180 6666 for enquiries.
