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

Sept inflation up 1.4%

Overall consumer prices rose 1.4% in September year-on-year, smaller than the 1.6% growth in August, the Census & Statistics Department announced today.   Netting out the effects of the Government’s one-off relief measures, September’s underlying inflation rate went up 1% compared to a year earlier, also smaller than the 1.2% recorded in August.   Compared with September last year, price increases were seen in electricity, gas and water, clothing and footwear, transport, meals out and takeaway food, durable goods, basic food and miscellaneous services.   On the other hand, year-on-year decreases in miscellaneous goods, housing as well as alcoholic drinks and tobacco were recorded.   The Government noted that the underlying consumer price inflation rate eased to 1% in September as the effect of the upward adjustment in public housing rentals in the same month last year dissipated and the year-on-year increase in prices of meals out and takeaway food narrowed due to the base effect.   Meanwhile, pressures on many other consumer price index components remained modest.   Looking ahead, while overall inflationary pressures will likely increase in the near term alongside the continued economic recovery and rising import prices, the underlying inflation should remain largely moderate in the rest of the year as the local economy is still operating below capacity, it added.
