2 jab centres to provide BioNTech

The public can make reservations from tomorrow to receive free BioNTech jabs at the community vaccination centres (CVCs) at Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park Sports Centre and Boundary Street Sports Centre, the Government announced today.   The two CVCs will provide vaccination services from January 26, bringing the number of such centres to 14.   The Government said there are also more vaccination booths or staff members at vaccination venues. The current vaccination capacity has increased by 77% from the beginning of the month, reaching 1.77 million doses a month or nearly 60,000 doses a day.   Separately, all CVCs will be closed during the Lunar New Year from January 31 to February 2.   Except for the two CVCs at private hospitals which will be closed for one more day, CVCs will provide normal services on the third day of the Lunar New Year on February 3.   Apart from going to the CVCs, eligible people can also receive free COVID-19 vaccination through 25 Hospital Authority genera

No virus cases in restricted area

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for the Shek Tong Tsui restricted area ended today with no confirmed COVID-19 cases found.   It made a restriction-testing declaration last night, requiring people at One South Lane to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing. Around 80 residents were tested.   In the subsequent enforcement action, 34 people's test records were checked. One person was found to have not undergone mandatory testing and was issued with a compulsory testing order.   The Government also assigned staff to visit around 90 households, of which about 35 did not answer the door. Follow-up measures will be taken.   According to the compulsory testing notice issued yesterday, people who had stayed in the building for more than two hours from December 5 to 27 must undergo testing by December 29 even if they were not in the restricted area when the declaration took effect.
