[13:13] Nie Dequan, Director of the Civil Service Bureau, and Chen Zhaoshi, Director of the Food and Health Bureau, will meet with the media on the new crown vaccination plan at 3:15 this afternoon.
It is understood that the government will announce at a press conference that it will relax the vaccination group to citizens aged 16 or above.
[13:03] "Hong Kong 01" discovered in the middle of last month that a private doctor vaccinated unqualified two-way pass holders with Kexing vaccination, exposing that the Department of Health did not provide clear guidelines to doctors and there were loopholes in the government system.
The doctor involved said at the time that the government agreed to complete the second injection for the person concerned based on humanitarian reasons.
However, a Canadian citizen who has received the first dose of the vaccine and does not have a Hong Kong ID card complained that the Department of Health recently (12th) refused a private clinic to complete the second dose for him, which is different from the previous statement.
He said that he plans to apply for a Chinese visa based on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' Office in Hong Kong. He is currently unable to receive a second shot and is worried about health problems.
In response, the Department of Health only emphasized the identity of qualified persons under the vaccination plan, but did not directly respond to whether a second injection can be given.

[12:38] The AstraZeneca vaccine was originally scheduled to arrive in Australia in mid-year.
According to Macau media reports, the Director of the Macau Health Bureau, Luo Yilong, said today (15th) that the Australian government has proposed to the AstraZeneca vaccine manufacturer to suspend supply to Australia, and the other party responded with consent.
Luo pointed out that the Australian government will review more international reports and studies on vaccine safety, as well as policy recommendations in different places, before considering the next step.
Luo Yilong continued that the World Health Organization has not made a precise statement on whether to continue to use the AstraZeneca vaccine. According to the latest recommendations, it still believes that vaccination benefits outweigh the risks.
However, there are enough vaccines in Macau, and there is no urgent need to introduce AstraZeneca vaccine.

[10:56] Under the epidemic, Hong Kong's tourism industry has not been able to restart.
Yao Boliang, the convener of the Hong Kong Travel Agency's Great Alliance for Relief, pointed out in the Hong Kong and Taiwan program "Millennium" today (15) that the industry very much hopes to restart local tours and cruises soon.
As for the government's point, only citizens who have been vaccinated can participate in high seas cruises.
Yao Boliang believes that it would be more reasonable for passengers to take a virus test before boarding and board the ship after receiving a negative result.
