Chief Secretary John Lee today chaired the Youth Development Commission's ninth meeting where members welcomed the new youth development initiatives and the direction of reorganising the Government structure to foster and support youth development in the 2021 Policy Address.   The commission will actively follow up on the Chief Executive’s invitation to explore the introduction of a new funding scheme to subsidise eligible non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to organise projects that are conducive to nurturing young people's positive thinking.   It will roll out a new thematic funding scheme on outdoor adventure training activities for more NGOs to provide systematic and quality outdoor adventure training activities for young people.   Members were also briefed on the latest progress of the Funding Scheme for Youth Entrepreneurship in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and the Greater Bay Area Youth Employment Scheme, as well as the details of relevant Polic

Jab plans to start on Oct 6

The Centre for Health Protection today said that the 2021-22 Government Vaccination Programme and Vaccination Subsidy Scheme will start on October 6 to provide eligible citizens free or subsidised seasonal influenza jabs.   Specific groups of Hong Kong residents will in phases receive free influenza vaccination through designated public clinics under the Government Vaccination Programme.   Starting from November 1, people aged 65 or above living in the community can get vaccinated at the Department of Health’s designated elderly health centres.   From November 8, these senior citizens, as well as poultry workers, pig farmers and those involved in poultry culling operations or the pig-slaughtering industry, as referred by government departments, can have flu jabs at the Hospital Authority’s general out-patient clinics.   The centre further said that under the Seasonal Influenza Vaccination School Outreach (Free of Charge) scheme, a public-private-partnership team or a government outreach team will provide free vaccination for schoolchildren in participating schools. The service for kindergartens, kindergarten-and-child care centres and child care centres will begin on October 6 while that for primary schools will start on October 13.   At the same time, the Vaccination Subsidy Scheme will be launched this Wednesday. Hong Kong residents meeting relevant requirements can receive subsidised flu jabs at clinics of private doctors enrolled in this scheme.   Meanwhile, free/subsidised pneumococcal vaccination for eligible people will still be available under the Government Vaccination Programme and Vaccination Subsidy Scheme, the centre noted.   Those aged 65 or above who do not have high-risk conditions can receive one dose of 23-valent polysaccharide pneumococcal vaccination. Elderly people with high-risk conditions who have not been administered a pneumococcal jab before can get one dose of a 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine, followed by one dose of a 23-valent jab a year later.   It is recommended that citizens have an interval of at least 14 days between getting a COVID-19 injection and a flu or pneumococcal jab, the centre added.   Call 2125 2125 or visit the dedicated web page for further information.
