Vaccination centers to shorten opening hours from Monday

Vaccination centers to shorten opening hours from Monday

Starting from Monday, 21 community vaccination centers will shorten their opening hours and close on Wednesdays.
The centers will operate from 10am to 6pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. On Saturdays and Sundays, the opening hours will be from 8am to 8pm. All centers will close between 1.30pm and 2.30pm on working days for cleaning.

All eligible people can collect same-day tickets and get Covid-19 vaccines at the centers – except those located at a private hospital -- without prior booking. People may also make reservations and choose their preferred time slots to receive the Sinovac vaccine or the BioNTech vaccine through the designated website of the Vaccination Programme (www.covidvaccine.gov.hk).

People may also make reservations for Sinovac vaccination at Ma On Shan Family Medicine Centre and Tin Shui Wai (Tin Yip Road) Community Health Centre under the Hospital Authority. They can also receive the Sinovac vaccine through private doctors or clinics participating in the program.

Five centers run by private hospitals will stop operation on Monday. They include Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital, HKSH Eastern Medical Centre, St. Paul’s Hospital, Tai Po Hui Sports Centre run by Union Hospital and Tsuen King Circuit Sports Centre run by Hong Kong Adventist Hospital, Tsuen Wan.

On top of community vaccination centers, seven stations have been established at public hospitals to enable patients visiting the hospitals for follow-up appointments to receive BioNTech vaccination without prior booking.

They operate from 10am to 7pm on weekdays – except public holidays -- with no lunch break. Last vaccination is at 6.30pm.

The seven hospitals are Queen Mary Hospital, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Tuen Mun Hospital, Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital, Tseung Kwan O Hospital, Caritas Medical Centre and Prince of Wales Hospital.
