Link Asset Management Limited (Link) and the Civil Service Bureau collaborated to provide outreach vaccination services today at Lok Fu Place. Due to the overwhelming participation from the community, the service started early from 9 am. For the day, about 370 people, including nearby residents, Link’s shopping mall and fresh market tenants, Link’s employees and contractors’ staff, received the first dose of BioNTech vaccine at Lok Fu Place.
Due to overwhelming responses, under the coordination of the Civil Service Bureau, Link arranged shuttles to bring about 80 citizens who missed out on vaccination tickets at Lok Fu Place to other community vaccination centres. This was done so that they could receive the BioNTech vaccines on the same day.
Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip and Link’s Chief Executive Officer George Hongchoy visited Lok Fu Place to inspect the operation and show support to the staff and participants.
“Link has been echoing the government’s call to encourage staffers and the public to receive COVID-19 vaccines,” Hongchoy said during his visit. “This would help protect themselves and their families and also allow our lives to get back to normal. We hope the outreach vaccination services at Lok Fu Place can make vaccination more convenient to citizens.”
The second dose of BioNTech vaccine will be administered on 23 September at the atrium at UG2 floor of Zone B, Lok Fu Place, to those who have received the first dose today.
In addition, the Lucky Draw organised by Link is now open for online registration until 24 October. All fully vaccinated Hong Kong residents who have reached the age of 18 on or before 1 September are eligible to participate. The Lucky Draw will take place on 27 October, and the list of winners will be announced on the same webpage on 29 October. The winners will be notified by SMS.
