On Tuesday's Backchat, Covid-19 updates.
Hong Kong children aged 12 to 15 will be able to start getting their BioNTech coronavirus vaccines on June 14.
The government said shuttle bus services could be arranged to run between vaccination centres and schools, so that students and their parents can get the jab in groups.
Medical staff could also be deployed to give vaccinations at campuses.
Officials said schools could resume full-day classes if around 70 percent of teachers and students are vaccinated. But some parents and pupils remain cautious, worrying about possible side effects.
Do you think Covid restrictions should be relaxed in schools? How will this boost the vaccine take-up rate?
Meanwhile, the private sector tries to boost vaccination rates with incentives including $20 million worth of shopping coupons, free insurance policies and gold bars. What do you think? Will you join in?
