ACMS

And has already been blackballed by the FAA as incompatible with licensing issue. Politics perhaps. However, worth bearing in mind that at least one fairly big player in the pilot licensing stakes considers it unsuitable for pilots.

And how’s that working out for CXi so far? 2 weeks quarantine, corporate “image” in absolute shambles, crew relations at rock bottom, and just wait for those financial results in April - it’s gonna read like Stephen Kings horror story

Any reason why we can't lockdown like Auckland and get the cases over with?

Yeah. Lockdown for how long ? A year. Panic over one case. Plunge your economy back to barter status.
Plenty of reasons

It will be at least September, with or without a vaccine.

Saying that, I've booked mine. Easy.

A bit of wishful thinking. As much as I would love to leave my plush jail cell to explore an outport, it’ll be a cold day in hell when the government allows us to step out at an outport before years end

Also booked my "Fosun" "Comirnaty" vaccine today. Perhaps the press cannot spell Pfizer, or maybe it has been re-packaged by a local agent. A nice little earner...

What I would like to do is to echo and amplify the posts above on the booking process online. The website should be an exercise in IT classes on how to make things simple, logical and fast for the general public. It was a delight to use and simple to understand. I can assure the Hong Kong people that there are very many worse government COVID vaccination web sites around the world.

Not sure why anyone would accept the chi-com stick. This is the country who quit reporting COVId data months and months ago, got a free pass from their bought and paid for sock puppets (W.H.O.) and you deem them trustworthy? No thanks! They've kicked out every third party reporter and only push the chi-com narrative. Run and run far away from anything rolling out from the chi-com.

my 2 cents
people who accept Sinovac jabs are either
(1) because it's much cheaper than BioNTech
(2) far more likely, blue ribbon, chinese rednecks in their 40s/50s who believe in patriotism and love mainland things and ONLY patriotism and loving mainland things. the kinds you see blasting the ccp anthem and yelling yOu ArE cHiNeSe PeOpLe at protests
(3) people who are scared of BioNTech vaccine side effects because this vaccine has scarier side effects than the Sinovac ones according to trial data of course

BioNTech Suspended in HK

Arrived this morning to get my vaccination and discovered that, due to a packaging problem, all Pfizer vaccinations have been suspended UFN. After a while, a message came through confirming the decision and re-scheduling of appointments will happen once they have worked out the problem and whether the batches on hand have been compromised.
Very frustrating.

Because the manufacturer warned them of a batch fault?

Would you have gone ahead and dished them out, anyway?

Will be up and running again soon. A titling of a cap that is defrosting from -80 is little to worry about.

Great! So they have injected me with a vaccine which could have been tampered with by anyone because it was not sealed properly!
