Govt focused on seniors’ jabs

The Government will make every effort to facilitate the elderly to get COVID-19 jabs in the coming months, Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip said today.   Meeting the media after attending a radio programme, Mr Nip explained the Government’s latest vaccination strategy.   “Our focus in the coming months is to boost up the vaccination rate for the elderly because they are the vulnerable group that we have to protect, and to build a strong protective shield in the community.   “We will try every possible channel to facilitate the elderly to get the jabs including arranging outreach service at shopping malls, in housing estates, or arranging talks, medical consultation and vaccination service on site in different districts.”   Mr Nip pointed out that apart from easy booking, the elderly can receive walk-in jabs at community vaccination centres via same-day tickets.   He said whether to expand the coverage of the ticket arrangement, currently open to five groups including seniors, will depend on the centres’ capacity and other factors.   “If possible, we will of course consider expanding the coverage of the same-day tickets to facilitate more people including the elderly to get the jabs easily.”
