Jab service expands to mall

The Government’s outreach team for the first time, set up a temporary vaccination area to provide a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination service at a shopping mall in Kwun Tong today.   Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip inspected its operation and presented prizes to winners of a lucky draw which was held to encourage the public to get vaccinated. He thanked the shopping mall for providing the venue and for joining the Government in promoting the vaccination campaign.   “This is the first time that our outreach service team has provided a COVID-19 vaccination walk-in service at a shopping mall to allow people who wanted to get vaccinated to do so immediately without prior booking.”   He noted that as the Government has started giving out consumption vouchers, citizens may use them at shopping centres.   “I hope that while they go shopping, they can also realise the importance and urgency of getting vaccinated,” he added.   Almost 300 people including shopping mall and office complex tenants received the BioNTech jab at the temporary vaccination area today.
