Storyline


A total of 42,000 Hong Kong people had made vaccination appointments within the first nine hours since the booking system opened, said Chief Executive Carrie Lam of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region on Tuesday.

As the first shipment of one million doses of the Sinovac vaccine arrived in Hong Kong on Friday, Carrie Lam and several HKSAR government officials were the first to receive the vaccination on Monday.

"Yesterday, several HKSAR government officials, Executive Council members and legislative council members and I got vaccinated. So far, I have not got any reaction. As you can see, I feel really good, and I even don't feel any pain at the injection place in my arm," said Lam.

Vaccination booking system opened at 00:00 on Tuesday, targeting Hong Kong residents who belong to priority groups including persons over 60, healthcare and medical workers and other essential workers. The vaccination will begin on Friday at five community centers and 18 clinics under the Hospital Authority.

"I'm glad to hear that from 00:00 to 09:00, there are 43,000 residents from five priority groups that have already made appointments online to get vaccinated at the five community vaccination centers and 18 clinics," said Lam.

Lam said that as of 09: 00 on Tuesday, the appointments made with 18 clinics were full, and there are still some vacancies at the five community vaccination centers. She encouraged relevant groups to make appointments as soon as possible.

"As of 09: 00, due to the limited doses assigned to general out-patient clinics, the appointments of 18 general out-patient clinics were full, and the five large-scale community vaccination centers could still receive appointments," said Lam.

The SAR Government will continue working on vaccination, and the second shipment of vaccine may arrive in Hong Kong soon, and we will further push community vaccinations, said Lam.
