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

CS visits vaccination centres

Chief Secretary Matthew Cheung today visited the community vaccination centres (CVCs) in Tuen Mun and Sham Shui Po to learn about their operation and give encouragement to staff members there.   Mr Cheung was briefed on the operation of the CVCs set up at Yau Oi Sports Centre and Lai Chi Kok Park Sports Centre.   He chatted with people getting vaccinated at the two centres and thanked them for participating in the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme to help contain the epidemic.   So far, about 206,000 people have received their first dose of vaccine.   Noting that the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases is on the rise again, Mr Cheung appealed to people in the priority groups to get their jabs as soon as possible to protect themselves and others.   The Government has expanded the vaccination programme to cover people aged between 30 and 59. Domestic helpers and students aged 16 or above studying outside Hong Kong can also make a booking for the vaccination.
