More HZMB private car quotas set

The governments of Hong Kong and Macau have agreed to increase the regular quotas for Hong Kong cross-boundary non-commercial private cars using the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge to Macau, the Transport Department announced today.   The decision was made to enhance traffic flow between Hong Kong and Macau, better utilising the bridge, the department said.   It will increase the Hong Kong quota by 1,000, following the earlier quota allocation of 1,800 for Hong Kong.   The additional quota will be distributed in two phases from the second quarter.   Half of the additional 1,000 quota allocations is for company applicants and the other half is for individual applicants. The quotas are valid for no more than three years. The eligibility criteria of quota applications remains the same.   Private cars allocated with Hong Kong quotas will be permitted to access the city of Macau multiple times using the bridge.   The Hong Kong quota allotments will be re-allocated upon expiry thro

BioNTech vaccination suspended

The Government today announced that it immediately suspended COVID-19 vaccinations concerning BioNTech after deviations in the vial seal were found in one batch of the vaccine.   It explained that it received written notification this morning from Fosun Industrial Co. about the deviations that involve batch 210102.   The Government noted that while BioNTech and Fosun Pharma have no reason to believe there is a risk to product safety, for the sake of prudence, vaccination of the batch concerned should be suspended pending an investigation.   It added that batch 210104 of the BioNTech vaccine should also be put on hold and not be administered as a precautionary measure to ensure vaccine safety.   The Government stated that people who have made appointments to receive BioNTech vaccination from today onwards need not go to the community vaccination centres for vaccination.   The Department of Health will hold an urgent meeting with Fosun Industrial Co. to obtain further details of the incident and discuss follow-up measures.
