The Government today arranged around 200 people in the vaccination priority groups to receive their COVID-19 jabs at the Community Vaccination Centre in the Central Library’s Exhibition Gallery.
Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip, together with Secretary for Food & Health Prof Sophia Chan and Secretary for Transport & Housing Frank Chan, visited the vaccination centre.
Mr Nip said those who took part today could encourage others to get vaccinated early, with a view to protecting themselves and others.
The vaccination is free of charge. Those in the priority groups who have made reservations can get inoculated at five community vaccination centres and 18 Hospital Authority general outpatient clinics from February 26.
Private doctors participating in the vaccination programme will also administer the Sinovac vaccine for priority groups in early March.
