The government is making every effort to increase the rate of COVID-19 vaccination. However, a "Hong Kong 01" survey found that there are nurses in the vaccination center who suspected relatives and friends who did not want to be vaccinated were "pretending to be a shot" in order to issue a vaccination certificate.
The incident was the new crown vaccination station of Queen Elizabeth Hospital, operated by the "Healthcare International Medical Group".
The news stated that a doctor knew that the nurse had been warned not to commit the crime again, and the incident was discussed in the health communication group, but there was no punishment for the nurse, no notification to the Department of Health and no report to the police.
Liang Guoling, the Chief Operating Officer of Health and Wellness, initially stated that he did not know, and the reporter said he had heard of it after the reporter asked about it.
"Hong Kong 01" is inquiring about the incident with the government.

Relatives and friends who were present at the scene did not line up as normal, and the nurse involved took the initiative to give injections
The new crown vaccination stations in public hospitals are operated by outsourced private contractors. Among them, the vaccination station in Queen Elizabeth Hospital is operated by the "Healthcare International Medical Group".
"Hong Kong 01" learned that a nurse at the vaccination station suspected of "pretending to be a shot" in October to assist relatives and friends who did not want to get a vaccination record.
According to the news, after the nurse's relatives and friends arrived, they would take the initiative to request injections for relatives and friends, instead of queuing up and randomly assigning nurses according to the normal procedure.
The vaccine involved is BioNTech Fubitai vaccine.

Was seriously warned by the doctor and promised not to commit
The source said that after the incident was revealed, a doctor issued a severe warning to the nurse. The nurse admitted that she had "pretended to be an injection" and promised not to commit the crime again. Later, she also asked to resign, but she has not left her job.
"Hong Kong 01" obtained screenshots of conversations related to the incident, showing that an informed doctor said that "pretending to be an old man is not acceptable for injections." The doctor also said in Kangjian's communication group that "if you don't have an injection, you want to pretend to be a doctor. Unacceptable. If found, we will report to the police."
Liang Guoling, Chief Operating Officer of Town Health International Medical Group, said that at first he thought the incident had no evidence, and will now conduct a thorough investigation again.

Director of Health and Health only admitted to knowing and will investigate thoroughly after inquiring
The conversation record obtained by the reporter shows that Liang Guoling, the operating director of Town Health International Medical Group, was aware of the incident earlier, and the reporter called for inquiries. Liang Guoling initially said that he did not know the incident, but later admitted that someone had reported the incident to him.
He explained that there was a discord in it, and there was no evidence. "I felt like a gossip (gossip) of an adult" at the time. It is difficult to assert the truth based on rumors alone.
Liang Guoling said that if the incident is true, it is a matter of the nurse's personal integrity and he is not concealing the incident for the sake of the company's reputation.
He stated that in response to reporters' inquiries, he would thoroughly investigate the incident again, "asking (employees) one by one," and once it was confirmed that it was true, he would report to the police for handling.
He later added that he had notified the government of the incident and learned about the incident to his subordinates. He still believed that the incident involved a personal dispute between employees and there was no evidence, but he would continue the investigation, which is expected to take about a week.
