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.

Health code website updated

The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer announced that two new functions have been introduced on the Hong Kong Health Code website in order to facilitate citizens to register for and use the health code on their own.   With the new "Cancel Unactivated Account" function, people who have completed registration but fail to activate their account due to different reasons, such as not receiving the confirmation letter containing a personal identification number caused by entering a wrong residential address during registration, can now delete the unactivated account and register again.   The "Forget Password" function has also been simplified to allow people to reset their password by just providing information of their identity document and the one-time passcode received through SMS.   As at noon today, over 721,000 people have registered for a health code account, among which nearly 80% have already activated their accounts.   The office has arranged outreach teams to set up Hong Kong Health Code mobile support stations at 10 Mass Transit Railway stations since late last month. An enthusiastic response was received with around 15,000 people making applications for the health code.   From tomorrow, 15 more mobile support stations will be set up at MTR stations to assist citizens in need, bringing the total number of such support stations to 25.   The additional stations will be located at MTR stations in Long Ping, Sheung Shui, Wu Kai Sha, Tai Wai, Tsuen Wan West, Nam Cheong, Hung Hom, Kowloon, Prince Edward, Kowloon Tong, Wong Tai Sin, Ho Man Tin, Sai Ying Pun, Wan Chai and Shau Kei Wan.   Meanwhile, the Home Affairs Bureau invited the office to hold briefing sessions earlier for 48 district or clansman associations and charity groups to introduce the health code's system and operation, as well as to call on them to help their members and service users complete relevant registration procedures.   The Home Affairs Department has also set up mobile support stations at more than 120 locations across the city since December 21 and distributed leaflets to encourage citizens to register for a health code account.
