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

Pupils to get same-day jab tickets

The Government today announced that its same-day ticket arrangement for COVID-19 vaccination will be expanded to cover students aged 12 or above starting August 27.   Tickets will be distributed at 24 community vaccination centres (CVCs) so that students can receive COVID-19 jabs at a designated timeslot on the day of ticket distribution.   The same-day ticket arrangement was first introduced for people aged 70 or above and was later extended to cover people aged 60 or older.   As the arrangement has been running smoothly, the Government decided to extend it to cover students studying at primary and secondary schools as well as post-secondary institutions with the aim of assisting students and their parents who have not yet received their jabs.   Each student can be accompanied by a maximum of two people to receive vaccination. The companions can also get vaccinated together.   The same-day tickets will be distributed daily from 7.45am on a first-come, first-served basis.   Eligible people can present their Hong Kong identity card to get a same-day ticket at the CVCs. They can also authorise their family members or carers to collect a ticket on their behalf by presenting a copy of the authoriser's identity card or school attendance documents for registration.   Those aged 12 to 17 are also required to bring along a consent form signed by their parents for getting vaccinated.   The schedule for receiving the second dose will be provided when the student or senior citizen gets the first jab.   About 4,600 same-day tickets will be given out daily at the 24 CVCs in August.   Due to the limited capacity of the venues, the CVCs at Tung Chung Community Hall and Hong Kong International Airport will each distribute 100 tickets per day, while other CVCs, except those run by private hospitals, will each distribute 200 tickets per day.   The CVCs at Queen Elizabeth Stadium, Ap Lei Chau Sports Centre and the airport will distribute the tickets until August 31.
