Staying safe in the Lunar New Year of the Ox

Updated: Feb 11


The Year of the Ox will be here on Friday 12 February. It is Lunar New Year

tradition to have family dinner on New Year’s eve. This year, we urge members to stay within the lockdown rules, and not to mix with other households to celebrate. Be creative and use other forms of communication to meet family members.


Last Christmas, there were several cases of entire families being infected with the

virus because families have mixed together to celebrate. So please STAY SAFE, and

celebrate the New Year using digital means.


Vaccination

This week, the government is encouraging anyone who is over the age of 70 to book

a vaccination appointment. People who wish to have the jab can ring 119 between

7am and 11pm, or call their GP to book their vaccination. They can also do it online

via NHS website:

Deputy chief medical officer Prof Jonathan Van-Tam urged people to get the vaccine

"without delay" as the vaccines worked very well against the dominant Kent variant

of Covid-19 circulating across the country.


Prof Van-Tam also clarified that the South African variant - to which vaccines may

not be as effective - is still not the UK's most dominant variant. Although 147 cases

of the South Africa variant have been found in the UK, there was "no reason to

suggest it will catch up or overtake our current virus in the next few months".

If you or your family members need support with getting to the vaccination site, or

simply want more information on the vaccines, please contact Wai Ha Lam on

07761705553.


We can always organise a meeting or telephone call with a clinician to talk through

any concerns people have about the vaccine if you think this might help. In Hackney,

Laura Sharpe, CEO of City and Hackney GP Confederation, is also on hand to

answer questions by emailing laura.sharpe1@nhs.net


恭賀新禧 出入平安

農曆新年將致,傳統習俗一般是家人團聚一起吃團年飯賀新年。今年我們勸喻大家遵

守封城規則,不要與不和你同住的親友慶祝,可嘗試利用網絡世界互相見面祝賀。

去年聖誕節便是因有不少家庭違規慶祝,令到家中所有人都感染了病毒。所以為了保

障大家的安全,請遵守規則,大家在虛擬世界樂聚。


接種疫苗

政府鼓勵七十歲或以上人仕自行約時間接種疫苗。你可在早上7时致晚上11時之間致電

119,或聯絡你的家庭醫生或前往NHS網頁約接種疫苗的時間。

副首席醫療官Jonathan Van-Tam博士促請市民接種疫苗,因為它能有效抵抗英國變種病

毒。雖則現時的疫苗未能全面抵抗南非變種病毒,但英國現只發現了147宗南非變種病

毒病案,亦沒有全面擴散的跡像,所以市民不應因擔心疫苗不能抵抗南非病毒而拒絕

注射。


若你或你的家人需要協助或更多有關病毒或疫苗的資訊,請聯絡林慧霞女仕:

如你有任何憂慮,我們可安排與醫護人員召開會議或請他們致電於你,解答你的疑

問。你亦可將你的疑慮以電郵方式向克尼與金融區家庭醫生聯會總裁Laura Sharpe查詢
