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

2 vaccination events held

Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip today went to Yuen Long and Sheung Wan to encourage people to get vaccinated against COVID-19.   The Government’s outreach vaccination team provided the BioNTech vaccination service to residents at a temporary vaccination area set up in a Yuen Long shopping mall.   Meanwhile, senior citizens taking part in a vaccination event for the elderly in Central & Western District received jabs after a health talk and medical consultation in Sheung Wan.   Those who opted to receive the Sinovac or BioNTech vaccines were then arranged to get their jabs at the community vaccination centres at Java Road Sports Centre or Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park Sports Centre.   Mr Nip thanked the participants, representatives of the organisers and supporting groups.   Under the threat posed by mutant strains, Mr Nip appealed to the public to get vaccinated early in a bid to reduce their risk of falling seriously ill and dying should they get infected.
