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

Re-positive COVID-19 case reported

The "cruise-to-nowhere" itinerary of a cruise ship scheduled today was cancelled after the Department of Health identified a suspected re-positive case in the regular COVID-19 testing for crew members.   The Centre for Health Protection said the case involves 40-year-old crew member of Spectrum of the Seas. He had received two doses of Sinovac vaccination in April and May.   According to information provided by the cruise company, the crew member tested positive for COVID-19 in Malaysia in July. He tested negative for the virus for more than 10 times after he arrived in Hong Kong in August.   His sample collected on October 19 on board the cruise tested positive for the virus with a very low viral load. The patient has been asymptomatic.   Based on the epidemiological and laboratory findings, the case is compatible with a suspected re-positive overseas case.   Upon identification of the suspected re-positive case, the sailing of the cruise ship scheduled for departure from the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal at 7pm was cancelled in accordance with the contingency management mechanism devised for "cruise-to-nowhere" itineraries.   The patient was on board the ship scheduled to embark on the trip with about 1,200 passengers. About 1,000 passengers boarded the ship today, but he did not have direct contact with the passengers while on board.   The patient had worked on the same ship in two other cruise trips within this month. As a prudent measure, the ship will be included in a compulsory testing notice under which people who had been on board for more than two hours from 30 September to October 21 have to undergo testing by October 23. Close contacts will be put under quarantine.   Epidemiological investigation and contact tracing of the case will continue.
