Vaccine protection under scrutiny

Secretary for Food & Health Prof Sophia Chan said experts of the Joint Scientific Committee under the Centre for Health Protection will monitor the situation of new COVID-19 variants and review the data on the protection of various vaccines against such variants.   Speaking to the media after attending a radio programme today, Prof Chan noted that the committee has given information about the protection of different vaccines against the new variants.   She said: “According to the experts, the BioNtech vaccine is able to protect against some of the variants of concern. For the Sinovac vaccine, they are still waiting for further information from Sinovac.   “The experts will continue to monitor the situation and review any data provided to the Department of Health.”   For the vaccine produced by AstraZeneca, which the Government has signed an advance purchase agreement with, Prof Chan said the Government is aware of the news reports concerning the vaccine in different countries.   “We also notice there is news from the World Health Organization and also some countries most recently said that all the adverse effects are not related to or do not have a direct relationship with the vaccination of the AstraZeneca vaccine.   “We will continue to monitor the situation and the Department of Health has asked the manufacturer for further information.”   She explained that regarding the procedure, the manufacturer must first apply for approval for use in Hong Kong and the Advisory Panel on COVID-19 Vaccines will review the data before it recommends it for authorisation by the Government.   Such a process has not yet started, Prof Chan added.

The construction works of a relocation project in Kowloon have been suspended after a settlement monitoring checkpoint exceeded the limit, the Government said today.   The project relocates supporting operational facilities of Tsim Sha Tsui Fire Station Complex, Fire Services Club and other fire services accommodations to To Wah Road in Kowloon.   The Government explained that the readings recorded in a settlement monitoring checkpoint installed inside the railway tunnel between Kowloon Station and Olympic Station of the MTR Tung Chung Line had reached 20.27mm on September 7. The preset trigger level for works suspension is 20mm.   For the sake of prudence, the Mass Transit Railway Corporation suspended relevant works within the railway protection area on the same day.   The Buildings Department and the Architectural Services Department deployed staff to inspect the affected railway tunnel and confirmed that it is structurally safe.   The Electrical & Mechanical Services
