I’m not sure what would constitute “serious side effects”, but it may very well be good ones.

Should one “grow” by a few inches, after taking said vaccine, and collect 3 mil in the process, the story would certainly have a very happy ending

I think there is an approval required for links sometimes. If anyone is interested it is on covidvaccine . gov . hk / en / programme
click the list of centres and it'll show them all with included vaccine

All open for bookings, most greyed out. Sino at the moment but end of the week they say Pfizer will be unlocked for booking. From company information it looks like the CAD has no objection to either options.

I’m so glad so many people are willing to take the Sinovac one! This hopefully leaves my family and I with the Pfizer one

I got poked yesterday, Sinovacs, and so far no serious side effects, such as growing a spine

People just couldn't wait to book jabs: Carrie Lam

SCMP just said Sinovac jabs next week and Pilots would be first.......
So, who’s rolling up their sleeve for a Sinovac jab?
I think this piece of CCP propaganda might help answer that.....

HMM...

No it didn't answer the question. The propaganda piece merely mentioned that many people wanted vaccines and it did not quote exact statistics from the covid jab registration website. (How many signed up for Sinovac and BioNTech respectively?) The politician mentioned, Victor Chan Chi-Ho, is pro-establishment as evidenced by which political party he is in, so the citizens he is in contact with probably is as well. And this claim is justified because...
Victor Chan is a MAINLAND CCP OFFICIAL in Nanning town, Guangxi province and the vice-chairperson of a pro-CCP group (香港政協青年聯會, sorry can't find an English translation for the name), consisting of mainly descendants of rich HK businessmen. I don't think the opinions he gathered in the community are really representative of the HK population.
The article only serves to make the blue ribbon camp love the CCP more. It didn't answer anything.

Is that a former DFO's son getting the jab in the photo? Why would he be wearing uniform?

Evan was gutted not to get that photo opportunity, but Pete has been putting the work in with multiple bicep curls and was clearly the best choice on this occasion.

Well hello, anyone home, it’s obvious a PR exercise to show the public the crew are getting vaccines........surely a good opportunity.

Except for the fact that it’s the wrong vaccine.
