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.
