SCS gives encouragement to colleagues engaging in anti-epidemic work and appeals for COVID-19 vaccination (with photos)

     The Secretary for the Civil Service, Mrs Ingrid Yeung, visited Tung Tai House of Ching Tai Court in Tsing Yi today (July 26) to express support for staff members of the Civil Service Bureau (CSB) participating in the "restriction-testing declaration" (RTD) operation there and encourage residents to receive COVID-19 vaccination in a timely manner.

     About 80 staff members from various grades in the CSB took part in the RTD operation, arranging for the residents subject to compulsory testing to undergo specimen collection for COVID-19 nucleic acid testing in batches and making reservations for residents who wish to receive COVID-19 vaccination. 

     "There have been thousands of daily new confirmed cases recently. Members of the public, in particular the elderly and children, should receive appropriate doses of COVID-19 vaccine as early as possible to enhance protection and reduce the risk of falling seriously ill and death should they get infected. Currently, there are still 30 per cent of elderly persons aged 80 or above, and over 20 per cent of children aged 3 to 11, who have not received any COVID-19 vaccine dose. The mutant strains that have been widely circulating recently are more transmissible. Members of the public should arrange vaccination for, and in the interest of, the elderly persons and children of their family as soon as possible. There are a large number of quotas for vaccination available at the vaccination venues, where members of the public can receive vaccination conveniently. Members of the public should also arrange for the elderly persons and children of their family who have received the first or second dose to receive the remaining doses on time," Mrs Yeung said.

     Channels for free COVID-19 vaccination include the Community Vaccination Centres (CVCs), Hospital COVID-19 Vaccination Stations, designated general out-patient clinics of the Hospital Authority and Elderly Health Centres under the Department of Health, as well as private doctors and clinics providing the Sinovac vaccine and venues operated by private healthcare institutions providing the BioNTech vaccine.
