Yuen Long jab station to open

December 7, 2022

The Government announced that the Yuen Long Community Vaccination Station will be set up on December 16. Starting from 9am on December 9, the public can make reservations for the station's vaccination services online.


The new Yuen Long community vaccination station, located at the open space outside the Yuen Long Leisure & Cultural Building, will replace the community vaccination centre situated at the arena of the Yuen Long Sports Centre.


The Yuen Long community vaccination station will provide vaccination service with the Sinvoac vaccine for people aged 6 months or above, the BioNTech ancestral strain vaccine for those aged 12 or above as well as the BioNTech bivalent vaccine as a booster for eligible people. People aged 60 or above can collect same-day tickets at the community vaccination station for vaccination without prior booking.


The Government also announced that the three community vaccination centres located in the Yuen Long Sports Centre, the Kwun Chung Sports Centre and the Yuen Wo Road Sports Centre will be closed from noon on December 15.


Secretary for the Civil Service Ingrid Yeung said to provide convenience to the public in receiving their vaccination, the Government has gradually expanded the service network since September, making good use of different venues to set up community vaccination stations or private clinic COVID-19 vaccination stations at locations with convenient transportation or high patronage.


The newly opened Yuen Long Community Vaccination Station is the fourth community vaccination station following the stations at the Lai Chi Kok Park, the Wong Tai Sin Temple Square and the Java Road Playground.


“So far, we have returned six sports centres which were formerly used for vaccination to the Leisure & Cultural Services Department. Together with this round of consolidation in vaccination service network, a total of nine sports centres have been vacated for public enjoyment,” Mrs Yeung noted.


The number of private clinic COVID-19 vaccination stations for the public to make online reservations has increased to 26. Also, the 13 COVID-19 vaccination stations in public hospitals have enhanced their services to provide the Sinovac and the BioNTech ancestral strain vaccine/bivalent vaccines.


Meanwhile, the children community vaccination centres, the Hospital Authority's designated general outpatient clinics as well as the Department of Health's Elderly Health Centres, Student Health Service Centres and Maternal & Child Health Centres, together with some 1,000 private doctors, will continue to provide the vaccination service for the public.
