CE mourns Tong Wai-ki

Chief Executive Carrie Lam today expressed deep sorrow over the passing of Hong Kong Taoist Association Chairman Tong Wai-ki.   She said Mr Tong was held in high regard, adding that he had been committed to promoting the Taoist religion and Chinese culture and actively participated in social services and charitable activities, making significant contributions over the years.   He was awarded the Silver Bauhinia Star in 2013.   "I am deeply saddened by the passing of Mr Tong. On behalf of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government, I would like to extend my deepest condolences to his family and the Taoist community," Mrs Lam noted.   Acting Secretary for Home Affairs Patrick Nip also expressed deep condolences over the passing of Mr Tong.   He commended Mr Tong for dedicating his life in promoting the Taoist religion and uniting the Taoist community while actively participating in charitable services and talent nurturing. http://dlvr.it/SHNxxJ

Allergy assessment service enhanced

The Hospital Authority today announced that it decided to refine the service model of its Vaccine Allergy Safety Clinic to expedite the assessment service for people with history of allergies.   The clinic was set up at Grantham Hospital of the authority's Hong Kong West Cluster earlier to provide an assessment service and vaccination advice for referral cases with history of allergies.   According to its previous experience, nearly 98% of people with history of allergies and seeking consultation there are eventually confirmed to be suitable for vaccination.   In light of the rapid and continuous surge in referral cases recently that resulted in a prolonged waiting time for consultation, the authority decided to refine the clinic’s service model by arranging for other hospital clusters to assist and speed up the assessment service so that people suitable for jabs can consider receiving vaccination as soon as possible.   There are currently over 4,000 cases on the clinic's waiting list, including about 1,200 with allergic reactions after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine and about 2,800 with history of allergies but not yet vaccinated.   To expedite the assessment service, various hospital clusters under the authority will deploy specialists to assist in the assessment of the 2,800 people who have not yet been vaccinated, with reference to the clinical assessment guidelines prepared by the clinic.   Such people will soon be informed of an updated appointment date for an assessment before the end of September.   The clinic will then focus on the 1,200 people who had allergic reactions after vaccination.   The authority noted that in general, these people require further clinical assessment to ensure their safety.   They are not suitable, nor have the urgency, to receive the same kind of vaccine in the near future, the authority added.
