Vaccination reminder issued

The Government today reminded citizens in the five priority groups that they can make online bookings from 9am tomorrow for receiving the Comirnaty vaccine.   Reservations can be made through the online booking system on the designated website of the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme to receive the jab at the seven Community Vaccination Centres operated by the Hospital Authority for the period from March 10 to 30.   Under the programme officially launched on February 26, those in the five priority groups can book online for receiving the Sinovac vaccine at eight centres and the authority’s 18 general outpatient clinics for the period until March 28.   People can also choose to receive the Sinovac vaccine directly with a private doctor or clinic under the programme, without going through the Government's online booking system.   The Government called on those in the five priority groups to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
