    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, we're talking about a possible government restructuring to
    include a new bureau to handle culture and tourism. The Chief Executive hinted at the change on Sunday, and China’s latest five-year plan envisages a stronger role for Hong Kong in the area of arts and culture.

    So what could we expect from a new bureau? What role could it play in supporting the arts and culture industry in particular? What sort of improvements are required? We'll be talking to some leading figures from the arts world.

    And congratulations to Coleman Wong, the Hong Kong teenager who's won the boys' doubles title at the US Open tennis tournament in New York at the weekend. We'll be looking at sports stars' winning mentality after 9.15am.
