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

Virus tests in restricted area done

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for the Tin Shui Wai restricted area ended today with no confirmed COVID-19 cases found.   It made a restriction-testing declaration last night, requiring people at Block 2 of Grandeur Terrace to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing. Around 1,122 residents were tested.   In the subsequent enforcement action, about 390 people's test records were checked, among which eight people were found to have not undergone mandatory testing.   The Government also assigned staff to visit around 370 households, of which 32 did not answer the door. Such households are urged to contact the Government promptly to arrange testing.   According to the compulsory testing notice issued yesterday, those who have stayed in the building for more than two hours from December 17 to 31, 2021, must undergo compulsory testing by tomorrow even if they were not in the restricted area when the declaration took effect.
