Kexing quoted the vaccination data in Chile yesterday, saying that after the third injection of Kexing, the effective protection of symptomatic infections increased from 56% to 80.2%.

The Director of the Infection and Infectious Diseases Center of the University of Hong Kong, He Boliang, stated on the commercial channel program this morning (14) that past data showed that only one-third of the people were tested for antibodies six months after the second shot of Kexing, reflecting the need for the third shot. , And referring to the data from various places, the third injection is safe whether it is the original injection or the groove injection.

He pointed out that there is no problem with the vaccine supply in Hong Kong and an appointment system has been set up. As long as the group type of the third shot is clearly defined and there is no technical problem with the operation, the third shot should be started as soon as possible.

The mainland takes the third shot to determine four types of groups, including those who leave the country, to prevent the virus from returning to China

He Boliang said on the radio program that some of the mainland's epidemic prevention measures have been handled well. According to the vaccination arrangements of Kexing and Sinopharm, it has been implemented since the beginning of September that four categories of people must be vaccinated with the third dose, including border guards, low immunity, seniors over 60 years old, and migrants. People in the environment.

He pointed out that locals need three injections to leave the country to areas with higher risks than China. He believes that the strategy is related to foreign defense imports, in case citizens are recruited from other places due to insufficient immunity and bring the virus back to the country.

He believes that the expert group can refer to the practice of the Mainland and suggest that these four types of people who have already been in Kexing can get the third shot.

The current vaccination rate in Hong Kong is about 67%, which has not reached the 70% vaccination target.

He Boliang believes that the speed of vaccination in Hong Kong is very slow. After the introduction of the "grain needle" measure, about 50,000 to 60,000 people were vaccinated every day. Now it has fallen back to only 10,000 people who were vaccinated every day in the past two or three weeks, and there are still 2 million people. The person did not get an injection.

He believes that with reference to the situation around the world, the vaccine policy is aimed at resuming normalcy and requires civic responsibility. Measures include the need for injections when entering indoor high-risk places, and those who are not suitable for injections can be exempted.

He believes that the government should launch a "hot trick" for these 2 million people who have not been injected, and launch the second round of "grain injection" measures as soon as possible. "I believe Hong Kong people don't want to fight until Easter next year."
