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.

Railway settlement exceeds limit

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
