Hong Kong Tycoon Li Ka-Shing Gets Fully Vaccinated Against Covid
What’s new: Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-shing, 92, has been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 after receiving his second dose of BioNTech in early May, according to a Facebook post by his charity, the Li Ka Shing Foundation.
“The antibody index satisfies the (doctor),” the foundation said in the post on Thursday with a photo of his vaccination record, showing the second dose of vaccine was administered on May 7.
The background: Li received his first dose of the BioNTech vaccine last month as the city ramps up efforts to get more people vaccinated. In a post on Facebook, Li asked others to do the same: “I have taken the vaccine shot today. What about you?”
Hong Kong’s Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip thanked Li for taking action to support vaccinations in a separate Facebook post. Nip urged Hong Kong people to get vaccinated as soon as possible to “restart economy and resume traveling.”
