Reservation for vaccination at two newly added Community Vaccination Centres to start tomorrow
     Starting from tomorrow (January 20), members of the public can make reservations to receive free BioNTech vaccination at the Community Vaccination Centres (CVCs) located at Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park Sports Centre and Boundary Street Sports Centre. The two CVCs will provide vaccination services from January 26.
     "To enable members of the public to receive vaccination, we have increased the number of vaccination booths or manpower at vaccination venues and also increased the number of CVCs to 14. The current vaccination capacity has increased by 77 per cent from the beginning of the month, reaching 1.77 million doses a month or nearly 60 000 doses a day. Under the threat posed by the mutant virus strains with high transmissibility, we appeal to persons who are not yet vaccinated, in particular elderly persons, to get vaccinated as soon as possible for self-protection," a government spokesman said today (January 19).
     Eligible persons aged 60 or above can go to CVCs (except for the CVCs located at private hospitals) to get same-day tickets. They can present their Hong Kong identity (HKID) card to get a same-day ticket or they can 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.
