15th January 2022 – (Hong Kong) To dovetail with the Government’s COVID-19 vaccination programme and considering the public’s demand situation, the Hospital Authority (HA) announced today the provision of more vaccination options at general out-patient clinics (GOPCs) for the convenience of the members of public in receiving vaccination.
“In response to the public’s demand for different vaccines, 11 selected GOPCs originally scheduled to provide Sinovac vaccination services will change to provide BioNTech vaccine. The Tai O Jockey Club General Out-patient Clinic will also be added to provide Sinovac vaccination services,” the HA spokesman said.
“As it takes time for manpower deployment in the provision of BioNTech vaccination services and adjustment to some clinic services, the vaccination service of BioNTech will commence on January 25 with online booking available from January 22, while the vaccination service of Sinovac at the Tai O Jockey Club General Out-patient Clinic will commence on January 27 with online booking available from January 18.”
The 11 additional GOPCs providing Sinovac vaccination services will provide services as scheduled on January 21, while online booking will be available for the public from January 18. Together with the two GOPCs currently providing the service and the Tai O Jockey Club General Out-patient Clinic, a total of 14 selected GOPCs will provide Sinovac vaccination services.
