    On Tuesday's Backchat: Covid vaccinations for children.  
    Latest figures show that about 2.8 percent of young children aged between six months and under three years have had the Sinovac shot since it became available to the age group from August 4.
    A government advisor has described the number as far from satisfactory, urging parents not to wait for a Biontech version, as Sinovac was just as good at reducing deaths and serious illness.
    Meanwhile, government officials said have said they are still negotiating with Biontech to procure its children’s vaccine type, which is one-tenth the dosage of the adult version. More vaccine outreach services for kindergartens and child daycare centres will also be arranged.
    After 9.00am, we’ll look at the issue of sub-divided units in industrial buildings, after the Society for Community Organisation estimated that about 12,000 households are illegally renting such spaces.

    On Wednesday’s Backchat, we’re talking about the future of Hong Kong’s northern wetlands.
    The new environment and ecology minister Tse Chin-wan says a study of the ecologically-sensitive areas in the northern new Territories should be finished by the end of the year, and authorities will take a fresh look at setting their boundaries.
    This may result in some buffer areas being freed up for development, but the environment chief stressed that the main purpose is to enhance conservation efforts by better managing the area.
    What do you think? Is there a win-win scenario for housing development and the environment? Is there a good way to free up usable land without harming the prized habitat for wildlife?
    After 9:15, we will look at the difficulties healthcare professionals face in increasing the uptake of potentially life-saving HPV vaccines.
