10 jab centres to extend operation

The Government announced today that 10 community vaccination centres (CVCs) will extend their operation until March 31, 2022.   It explained that, in view of the vaccines supply and the demand for vaccination, the Government will adjust the vaccination programme's operation mode.   It will gradually shift the focus from providing vaccination services mainly through CVCs as in the past to a variety of vaccination venues including CVCs, Hospital COVID-19 Vaccination Stations, private clinics and the mobile vaccination station to be launched early next month.   From 9am tomorrow, the online booking system will gradually release the quota of the 10 CVCs as from January 1, 2022, for booking of the vaccination service.   Eleven CVCs will be closed by the end of this year. They are located at Kowloon Bay Sports Centre, Tin Fai Road Sports Centre, Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park Sports Centre, Education Bureau Kowloon Tong Education Services Centre, Ho Man Tin Sports Centre, Boundary Str

5 imported COVID-19 cases recorded

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating five additional imported COVID-19 cases, two of which involve mutant strains, while the viral load of one case is insufficient for a mutation test and the mutation test results of the two remaining cases are pending.   Among the patients, aged 10 to 77, three of them arrived from Pakistan while the rest arrived from the US.   One patient was confirmed infected with COVID-19 during quarantine and the others tested positive upon arrival at the airport.   One of the new cases involves a 54-year-old male patient who lives at Graceful Mansion, Siena Two in Discovery Bay. He received two doses of the BioNTech vaccine on March 10 and April 8 in Hong Kong.   The patient is a cargo flight crew member. His test conducted on October 19 in Hong Kong was negative.   He left Hong Kong on October 21 for the US and returned to Hong Kong on October 25 by flight CX075. His specimen collected upon arrival at the airport tested positive for COVID-19. He has been asymptomatic.   As a prudent measure, the places where the patient resided and visited in Hong Kong during the incubation period have been included in a compulsory testing notice, the centre noted.   As Emirates flight EK384 from Dubai and Bangkok arrived on October 25 with three passengers on board confirmed with COVID-19, the Department of Health has invoked the Prevention & Control of Disease (Regulation of Cross-boundary Conveyances & Travellers) Regulation to prohibit the landing of Emirates flights from Dubai and Bangkok from October 27 to November 9.   A total of 58 cases were reported in Hong Kong in the past 14 days, all of which are imported.   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government's dedicated webpage.
