2021-03-11

The HKSAR Government announced on 8 March 2021 (Monday) that registered construction workers will be included in the priority group for the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme. With further clarification from the Development Bureau, the Government will expand the scope of the priority group further to cover “other resident site staff” in addition to “registered construction workers”. Under the programme, both registered construction workers and other resident site staff can get vaccinated early to further protect themselves and others.

"Other resident site staff" includes all personnel employed by contractors / consultants / clients to work at construction sites, for example architects, engineers, land surveyors, quantity surveyors, contract managers, site managers and supervisors , site foremen, technicians, safety officers, clerical staff, tea servers, security guards and drivers, etc.

 

Booking for vaccination:

The Construction Industry Council and the Hong Kong Construction Association appeal to main contractors and subcontractors to encourage workers and resident site staff to get vaccinated. Contractors are also encouraged to assist workers in making reservation through the online booking system.   

 

After making reservation online, workers and resident site staff must present the below identity documents when going for vaccination as a proof for priority group:

1.   Construction workers: Construction Workers Registration Card issued by the Construction Industry Council

2.   Other resident site staff: Completed and signed letter with company / organisation chop issued by employer (The sample letter can be downloaded from the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme website www.covidvaccine.gov.hk. Staff at vaccination venues will not collect the employer letter, resident site staff may use the same letter for receiving the 2 doses of vaccines.)
