New harbourfront space opens

The Development Bureau announced that the Pierside Precinct near Wan Chai Ferry Pier further opened today, providing a nostalgic harbourfront leisure space with a panoramic view of Victoria Harbour for the public.   Being the 12th harbourfront leisure space that opened since October last year, the newly opened area is located to the east of the ferry pier on a harbour site reclaimed for the construction of the Central-Wan Chai Bypass.   The bureau said under the incremental approach, a 180-metre-long promenade of the precinct opened earlier in March, followed by the opening of a further 80m in October.   With an area of about 4,600 sq m, the newly opened part has almost doubled the precinct's original space.   In contrast to the colourful cartoon style adopted at other harbourfront sites opened earlier in Western District and Wan Chai, the precinct mainly comprises simple fair-faced concrete and wooden structures.   It features a stylish touch with its clear and rectiline

10k vaccinated by private doctors

Around 10,000 citizens have received the Sinovac vaccine through private doctors as at 4pm, the Department of Health announced today.   The department explained that starting March 1, it has been distributing the first batch of the Sinovac vaccines to private doctors and clinics participating in the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme.   The relevant private doctors and clinics began providing vaccination to the public from March 2.   So far about 1,350 private doctors have joined the vaccination programme.   The list of private doctors and clinics who have placed orders for the vaccines has been uploaded on the programme’s website and will be updated in a timely manner.   The department said the Government will strive to ensure private doctors are provided with sufficient vaccine doses to meet the public’s needs.   It also noted that it will co-ordinate the delivery of the vaccines and monitor the usage situation.
