The fifth wave of the epidemic has worsened, and the government has increased the number of vaccines. From today (21st), children aged 5 to 11 can be vaccinated with the Sinovac vaccine developed by the mainland. The appointment service starts at 8:00 a.m.; Parents of children with the Fubitai vaccine co-operated by the pharmaceutical factory can make an appointment from the 9th of next month and can be vaccinated on the 16th of next month. At nearly 9:00 in the morning, no parents brought their young children to take the Kexing vaccine outside the Guanyong Stadium.
The government said that in addition to giving injections at specific vaccination stations, it will also provide schools with special appointments to community vaccination centers, or student health service centers and pick-up services, as well as arranging mobile vaccination stations to provide outreach vaccination services to school children. For Sinovac vaccines, schools can also contact the Education Bureau to arrange for doctors who provide vaccine outreach services to vaccinate Sinovac vaccines.
The vaccination arrangement for children is the same as that for adults. The first and second doses of Sinovac vaccine need to be separated by 28 days. As for the Fubitai vaccine, because children are vaccinated with Fubitai vaccine, they need to go through a special vaccine dilution procedure. According to the recommendation of the Joint Scientific Committee and the expert advisory group, the first dose and the second dose of Fubitai vaccine for children should be 12 minutes apart. In the next week, the government will set up three community vaccination centres for children on Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories to vaccinate children aged 5 to 11 years with Forpidil.
