It offers effective protection for children by injecting COVID-19 vaccines for school kids free of charge.

     Miss Wong thanked all sectors of the community for their staunch support for vaccination activities organised by individual district offices such that citizens of all ages, especially children and the elderly who are more vulnerable to serious infection, can be vaccinated as soon as possible to obtain the much needed proper protection for themselves and others under the severe epidemic situation.
