Advance reservations for vaccination at two newly added Community Vaccination Centres starts this Friday

     Starting from this Friday (January 14), members of the public can make reservations to receive free BioNTech vaccination at the Community Vaccination Centres (CVCs) located at the Education Bureau Kowloon Tong Education Services Centre and Kowloon Bay Sports Centre.
     The two CVCs will provide vaccination services from January 21.
     "To enable members of the public to receive vaccination, we have decided to advance the date for reservation which was announced earlier for the two CVCs, so that the public can make early arrangements to make vaccination reservations," a government spokesman said today (January 12).
     "We appeal to the public to seize the opportunity to get vaccinated as early as possible. Persons who are yet to receive vaccination should get vaccinated as soon as possible. For persons who have taken their first and second doses, they should receive the third dose on time to protect themselves."  
     Eligible persons aged 60 or above can go to CVCs (except the CVCs located at private hospitals) to get same-day tickets. They can present their Hong Kong identity card (HKID) to get a same-day ticket or they can also authorise their family members to get a ticket on their behalf, provided that the authorised person can present a copy of the authoriser's HKID card.

     The same-day tickets are distributed daily from 7.45am on a first-come, first-served basis. Accompanying persons will not be allowed to receive vaccination together and separate vaccination appointments are required.
