The new crown pneumonia epidemic is stable, but the vaccination rate for the elderly has not been satisfactory.

The government COVID-19 vaccine outreach team will vaccinate the residents of Kwai Tsing District at the Shek Lei Hall Vaccination Center today (23) to Saturday. If the elders over 60 years old in the district receive a single shot of the vaccine, they will receive 200 yuan. Supermarket gift voucher.


Mr. Leung, a resident of Kwai Tsing District in his 90s, received his first vaccination today. He said he felt relieved after the injection.

He suffers from diabetes and needs two injections a day to control it.

However, I did not consult a doctor before the injection. The reason why I am receiving the injection now is because there is a 200 yuan gift certificate: "People are poor, so they need it. I'm 90 years old, don't be surprised."

At 9:30 in the morning, there is still half an hour before the injection is open. There are already more than a dozen elderly people waiting at the Shili Hall Vaccination Center.

Some elders who had received injections came to consult and learned that they must be vaccinated on the specified date before they can register to receive the gift certificate and leave.

Also coming to vaccinate was the 70-year-old mother-in-law Zhou. She said that her daughter-in-law and grandson had been vaccinated earlier, but because of high cholesterol and blood pressure, she needed to consult a doctor.

She was approved by her doctor earlier to be vaccinated. As for why she chose Koxing vaccine, she said that her doctor also received this vaccine, so she was more assured.

Earlier, she didn’t know that there will be gift certificates for vaccination today. After learning the news, she said it was an unexpected surprise: "Happy!"

70-year-old Mr. Xie lives in Tsing Yi and came here early in the morning under heavy rain.

He had completed two vaccinations in August, and learned that there was a gift certificate, so he made a special trip, but touched the nail.

He expressed helplessness and believed that the arrangement was unreasonable and unfair. "It is understood that there is no injection in August (a 200 yuan gift certificate)."
