2 new mobile jab stations set

March 3, 2022

Two additional COVID-19 mobile vaccination stations will come into operation tomorrow to provide services at various public housing estates and schools, enabling more people and students in relevant age groups to get vaccinated.


One of the new stations, which is the third mobile jab station, will provide Sinovac vaccination at Tai Hing Estate in Tuen Mun first. It will be moved to Tin Hau Temple Fung Shui Square in Tai Po and Tin Yiu Estate in Tin Shui Wai later this month.


This station will be run in the form of a container transported by a truck to designated locations.


For the fourth station, it will operate as an electric vaccination vehicle and offer the BioNTech jab service at Tai Yuen Estate in Tai Po first.


The vehicle will also visit various schools later this month, dedicated to providing the Sinovac vaccination service for students.


Noting that there will be a total of four mobile jab stations, Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip said the Government hopes to arrange for more citizens to get vaccinated in a shorter period of time, in particular elderly people and students, so as to boost the vaccination rate.


He also stressed that the current epidemic situation in Hong Kong is of grave concern, with hundreds of thousands of positive cases detected.


People who have not been vaccinated yet should get their jabs immediately, while those eligible for a third dose should receive it as early as possible.


Mr Nip said there are various channels for the public to get vaccinated, adding that the Government will closely monitor the situation, including the demand for vaccination, and make suitable adjustments.


The mobile jab stations operate from 10am to 5pm. People can make prior bookings by calling 5193 0375 or use walk-in services.


Only one type of vaccine is provided at each station each time, while its procedures for receiving the jabs are the same as those in community vaccination centres. Temporary waiting and resting areas will also be set up at open spaces next to the stations.
