    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 Thursday’s Backchat, emigration; and DSE results.

    Recently a great number of residents were seen leaving Hong Kong and emigrating to the UK, as its policy of “leave outside the rules” ended on Monday.

    The policy allows those without a BNO yet to be granted LOTR status at the UK border. They are also allowed to live and work in the country, as well as to apply for a BNO within the UK.

    But Carrie Lam has brushed off recent exodus of residents, saying “every now and then in the history of Hong Kong, there are such emigration trends.”

    The CE added that people make different choices as they enter different stages in their lives, and it is a personal choice for them to emigrate to other countries.

    She said, “but if you really ask me to say something to those who are seeking to emigrate or have already emigrated, I would tell them Hong Kong has a prosperous future.”

    How many are actually leaving Hong Kong? Who is attracted to leave? Why? What are the pros and cons of setting up life elsewhere?

    From 9:15am-9:30am, we’re discussing DSE results, as students this year stand a better chance of getting into local universities, with only 1.4 students fighting for each place.
