Enterprise participates in outreach COVID-19 vaccination (with photos)

     The Secretary for the Civil Service, Mr Patrick Nip, visited Manulife Tower in Kwun Tong today (July 13). During the visit, he and the Chief Executive Officer of Manulife Hong Kong, Mr Damien Green, jointly viewed the administering of the BioNTech vaccine to about 380 staff members and agents of the enterprise, as arranged by the Government's outreach vaccination service.
     "I am grateful to Manulife Hong Kong for joining hands with the Government in promoting the Early Vaccination for All campaign and encouraging its employees to support the vaccination programme.

     "For front-line salespersons it is very important to get vaccinated as they often have face-to-face interaction with their clients when promoting their insurance products, Mandatory Provident Fund products or investment funds. Getting vaccinated and observing personal hygiene are the best ways for them to safeguard the health of themselves, their families, their colleagues and their clients," Mr Nip said.
     Should enterprises and organisations have a sufficient number of employees who would like to get vaccinated and a suitable venue with sufficient space, they can make use of the outreach vaccination service so that their employees can be vaccinated in a more convenient way. Enterprises and groups can call the hotline for the outreach vaccination service at 3904 1490 from Monday to Friday, from 9am to 6pm, for arrangements.
     There has been enthusiastic support for the outreach vaccination programme since it was launched by the Civil Service Bureau. The Bureau has provided the outreach vaccination service to the Hong Kong Sports Institute, global professional services enterprises, property developers, financial institutions, the construction industry, public utilities, a property management company, universities, a theme park and a district organisation.
     Mr Nip expressed his gratitude to the medical team and administrative support staff of the Community Vaccination Centre at Tseung Kwan O Sports Centre for providing the outreach service today.
