They will operate daily from 9am to 6pm and last for six weeks.   Each centre, where eligible people may receive their first, second or third vaccine dose, can provide over 1,000 BioNTech jab doses to the public every day.   Same-day tickets will also be distributed at the three centres to those aged 60 or above.   Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip said the Government is increasing the vaccination capacity through different means to facilitate citizens who meet the age requirement to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
