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

Extending vaccine coverage advised

Scientific committees under the Centre for Health Protection today recommended the use of CoronaVac vaccine in adolescents from aged 12 to 17 for priority deployment, followed by children of a younger age group at a later stage.   The Advisory Panel on COVID-19 Vaccines recommended to extend the eligibility of the CoronaVac vaccine to cover children and adolescents aged three to 17 at its meeting on November 15.   Joined by the Chief Executive's expert advisory panel (EAP), the two scientific committees convened a meeting today to examine the relevant information and determine the priority groups for receiving the CoronaVac.   Speaking at a media session after the meeting, Scientific Committee on Vaccine Preventable Diseases Chairman Prof Lau Yu-lung said the joint scientific committee with the advisory panel has reached consensus to recommend that CoronaVac could be given right down to three-year-old children.   “However, we are of the opinion that we should do this in stages, like in many other countries as well as in the Mainland as well.   “That is to start off with the secondary school students, and then the primary school students and then the nursery school students. And that is a very natural progression, and also makes a lot of sense.”   He explained that the committees noted that phase 1 and 2 trials on the use of CoronaVac vaccine in children and adolescents aged three to 17 years showed that the vaccine is immunogenic, safe and well-tolerated.   In addition, ongoing phase 3 studies on the use of CoronaVac in this age group showed that the vaccine is well-tolerated.   He added that more than 100 million doses of CoronaVac vaccine have been administered to children and adolescents via a mass vaccination campaign in the Mainland, but without major safety issues shown.   The committees recommended the adolescents to get two shots of CoronaVac with at least a 28-day interval.
