Three Covid-19 Vaccination Stations will be set up in Queen Mary Hospital, Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Tuen Mun Hospital starting from Wednesday, the government announced today.
The jab stations will enable patients visiting the hospital for follow-up appointments and visitors, in particular patients of specialist out-patient clinics, to receive the BioNTech
vaccination without prior booking when they have their follow-up medical consultation.
The vaccination stations will open from 10am to 7pm on weekdays except public holidays, with no lunch break. The last vaccination is set at 6.30pm.
Arrangements will be made for people being vaccinated to have their second dose injection at the same vaccination station or another Community Vaccination Centre.
For those who opt for the Sinovac vaccine
, the vaccination stations will refer them to a nearby Community Vaccination Centre.
The Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip Tak-kuen, the official spearheading the city's inoculation program, said the government will set up more vaccination stations at public hospitals after the implementation of the pilot scheme depending on the actual situation.
