Hongkongers aged 60 and up can start receiving fourth doses of Covid-19 vaccines immediately, a senior official said on Friday, as he noted with concern that a lack of bookings had left the city’s inoculation campaign running at a mere one-third capacity.
Civil service minister Patrick Nip Tak-kuen, who oversees the city’s Covid-19 vaccination campaign, said that seniors who had received their third dose at least three months ago could start walking into community vaccination centres and inoculation stations at public hospitals to get their fourth doses from Friday, with no need to book ahead.
“For elderly people getting the same-day ticket, basically they will not need to wait,” Nip said at the government’s regular epidemic press conference.
For those that prefer to book in advance, the government’s online system will begin accepting fourth-dose appointments starting next Thursday. Nip said there were currently around 190,000 people aged 60 or up who were eligible for the fourth dose.
