One million doses of one of the Covid-19 vaccines arrived in Hong Kong on February 19, 2021. The first batch of Sinovac’s CoronaVac jabs touched down on Cathay Pacific flight CX391 at about 5.30pm local time. Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip Tak-kuen and Secretary for Food and Heath Professor Sophia Chan Siu-chee inspected the medical consignment at the airport. Hong Kong aims to launch mass vaccinations by the end of the month and the two officials said that the mainland-produced vaccine is safe and appealed to the public to take part in the government’s free vaccination programme.
