Fraudulent certificates deemed invalid

The Government announced today the COVID-19 vaccination medical exemption certificates issued by seven private doctors will not be accepted and will be deemed invalid from October 12.   According to the information provided by Police, the seven private doctors are involved in its arrest operations to date for allegedly abusing the issuance of medical exemption certificates. The legal proceedings are ongoing for some of those cases.   The Government pointed out that according to the eHealth records, the seven private doctors have issued in total over 20,000 medical exemption certificates which are still within the validity period, accounting for more than half of the medical exemption certificates that are still valid.   It has reasonable grounds to suspect that the private doctors concerned did not properly follow the Department of Health’s guidelines when issuing the medical exemption certificates.   In this regard, the Government will no longer accept the medical exemption ce

2 vaccination events held

Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip today went to Yuen Long and Sheung Wan to encourage people to get vaccinated against COVID-19.   The Government’s outreach vaccination team provided the BioNTech vaccination service to residents at a temporary vaccination area set up in a Yuen Long shopping mall.   Meanwhile, senior citizens taking part in a vaccination event for the elderly in Central & Western District received jabs after a health talk and medical consultation in Sheung Wan.   Those who opted to receive the Sinovac or BioNTech vaccines were then arranged to get their jabs at the community vaccination centres at Java Road Sports Centre or Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park Sports Centre.   Mr Nip thanked the participants, representatives of the organisers and supporting groups.   Under the threat posed by mutant strains, Mr Nip appealed to the public to get vaccinated early in a bid to reduce their risk of falling seriously ill and dying should they get infected.
