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

2nd batch of Sinovac jabs arrives

​The second batch of about one million doses of the Sinovac vaccine was delivered smoothly to Hong Kong from Beijing today.   Soon after the arrival of the vaccines this afternoon, staff checked and inspected them to ensure that they comply with the product specifications and that the transportation process followed the cold-chain requirements.   Together with the one million doses delivered to the city in February, about two million doses of the Sinovac vaccine have arrived in Hong Kong.   The Government urged members of the public to participate in the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme as early as possible to safeguard public health in the community.   People in the vaccination priority groups may make appointments online to receive the Sinovac vaccine for free at community vaccination centres and the Hospital Authority’s general outpatient clinics.   They can also make an appointment directly with a private doctor or clinic under the programme, without going through the Government's online booking system.   Participants need to bring their identity document and proof of belonging to a priority group to their vaccination appointment.    The vaccination fact sheet is available online.
