Ingrid Yeung inspects jab service

July 3, 2022

Secretary for the Civil Service Ingrid Yeung today visited the Central Command Centre (CCC) of the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme and the community vaccination centre (CVC) at Kwun Chung Sports Centre to inspect jab centres’ operation and vaccination arrangement after the typhoon.


In addition to monitoring the daily operation of vaccination centres, the CCC situated at the Central Government Offices also serves to cope with various kinds of unexpected situations such as inclement weather.


The CCC also maintains close contact with every vaccination venue to facilitate response as well as manpower and material deployment within a short time. Meanwhile, the CVCs will also notify the CCC in case of emergency.


The Government has issued SMS notifications to people with a vaccination booking at the CVCs during the typhoon’s passage to inform them of their new vaccination time slot. Citizens can also select another time slot via the designated website.


The Home Vaccination Call Centre will inform those affected of the updated vaccination arrangement under the home vaccination service by phone tomorrow.


The civil service chief thanked the staff at the CCC and CVCs for their dedication in serving the public.


Noting that the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases remains at a high level recently and the protection conferred by the vaccines will diminish over time, Mrs Yeung reminded citizens to take note of the experts’ recommendations and get their next vaccine dose on time.


In particular, people aged 60 or above should receive the fourth vaccine dose as soon as possible to enhance protection, she added.
