Vaccine coverage to expand

The Government announced today that people aged 12 to 17 will be accorded priority to make reservations for and receive a Sinovac vaccination from December 2.   Starting from 9am on December 2, they can make reservations for vaccination at the community vaccination centres (CVCs) or the Hospital Authority's Ma On Shan Family Medicine Centre and Tin Shui Wai (Tin Yip Road) Community Health Centre through the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme website.   Apart from the existing service network, the Department of Health's five Student Health Service Centres will provide from the same day the Sinovac vaccine to students aged 12 to 17 as well as health information to parents and students from 9am to 12.30pm and 2pm to 5.30pm from Monday to Friday.   These five centres are Chai Wan, Lam Tin, Sha Tin, Tuen Mun and Western Student Health Service Centres.   From November 26, parents can call the Student Health Service at 2856 9133 for appointment booking.   Moreover, they can also make appointments for a Sinovac vaccination through private doctors or clinics enrolled in the vaccination programme.   The CVCS will operate from 10am to 6pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and from 8am to 8pm on Saturdays and Sundays.   All CVCs will close between 1.30pm and 2.30pm on working days for cleaning. They will be closed on Wednesdays.   Eligible people can collect same-day tickets and get vaccinated at the CVCs. The tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.   The Government will provide this age group with special channels to get vaccinated, including providing special appointments for schools at CVCs and transport from and to schools. The Education Bureau will issue a letter to inform schools of the arrangements this week.   People aged 12 to 17 are required to bring along a consent form signed by their parents for getting their vaccinations. The consent form can be downloaded online.   The BioNTech vaccine has been already deemed suitable for those aged 12 or above. The public are reminded that before making an appointment, they should take note of a minimum interval of 14 days between a COVID-19 vaccination and any other vaccinations including the seasonal flu vaccine.
