    On Friday's Backchat: Covd-19 jabs for teenagers; and the Election Committee subsector elections.

    Expert advisers to the government have changed their guidance on Hong Kong teenagers getting vaccinated against Covid-19, saying they need only one BioNTech jab instead of two.

    The change comes after more than 30 young people experienced inflammation of the heart as a suspected side-effect of the injection since those aged between 12 and 17 began receiving the shots in June.

    After 9:15am, we’re looking ahead to the Election Committee Subsector elections which will take place this Sunday.

    On Tuesday's Backchat, LGBTQ communities in Hong Kong; and bus fares.


    17th May was the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.

    According to a recent CUHK survey 76% of local transgender respondents say they have faced rejection in different dimensions of social life, with 62% experiencing
    victimisation.  What is the situation like for the LGBTQ communities in Hong Kong? Are feminists like JK Rowling who are concerned about preserving safe spaces for women, and who are sceptical about too easy gender recognition plans, transphobic?


    From 9:15am-9:30am, we'll be discussing bus fares. Four bus operators were allowed to raise fares this year. But one company says it is still making massive losses and is likely to seek another fare increase. What do you think about it?
