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.
