Flu jab booking set

Community vaccination centres (CVCs) in various districts will offer free seasonal influenza vaccination (SIV) to Hong Kong residents aged 50 or above when they are there for COVID-19 vaccination starting from October 6.   The Government announced today that eligible people can make reservations for receiving both COVID-19 vaccination and SIV through the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme booking system starting from 9am tomorrow.   They may also choose to receive the free SIV on site when they are receiving the COVID-19 jab starting from October 6.   Given that local seasonal influenza activity has been staying at low levels since February 2020, the overall immunity against influenza in the community is at present relatively low, the Government noted.   As the winter flu season is approaching, citizens are strongly urged to complete the recommended dosage of COVID-19 vaccines and the latest seasonal influenza vaccine as early as possible to obtain better protection in the event of

New TV frequencies reminder issued

The Office of the Communications Authority announced today that six digital TV programme channels in Hong Kong will use new transmitting frequencies starting December 1.   Property owners and managers who have not yet arranged with their contractors to reconfigure the common antenna broadcast distribution (CABD) systems of their buildings must act immediately, the office said.   Otherwise, residents may not be able to continue receiving the TV programme channels concerned after midnight on that day, it added.   The six channels are Jade 81 of Television Broadcasts Limited, ViuTVsix 96 and ViuTV 99 of HK Television Entertainment Company Limited and RTHK TV 31, RTHK TV 32 and RTHK TV 33 of Radio Television Hong Kong.   So far around 90% of households in multi-storey buildings with CABD systems in Hong Kong have completed the reconfiguration work.   Upon the completion of the reconfiguration of their CABD systems by contractors and on their advice, property owners and managers should inform the residents that they may need to rescan for the TV programme channels on their digital TV receivers.   Property managers should pay particular attention to the elderly, ethnic minorities and residents with special needs and provide appropriate assistance as necessary.   Households using self-provided antennae, including residents of village houses, bungalows and old tenement buildings, do not need to adjust their digital TV receivers or antennae at this juncture.   They should rescan for TV programme channels on their digital TV receivers only if they cannot receive any of the TV programme channels after midnight on December 1.   Call 2961 6333 for enquiries.   Click here for the guide on rescanning digital TV programme channels.
