Jab centre to open in Causeway Bay

A satellite community vaccination centre will be set up on 7/F, Leighton Centre in Causeway Bay to provide the BioNTech COVID-19 vaccination service from next Friday, the Government announced.   Online reservations can be made starting from 9am next Tuesday.

Children aged five to 11 have to get their BioNTech jab at the three children community vaccination centres at Hong Kong Children’s Hospital, Yuen Chau Kok Sports Centre and Gleneagles Hospital.
