Hong Kong is likely to resume BioNTech-Pfizer vaccinations early next week, the South China Morning Post reported Wednesday, citing sources it didn’t identify.

Hong Kong was already struggling to raise its dismal vaccination rate when it halted the use of shots developed by BioNTech SE and Pfizer Inc. on March 24 after finding packaging defects in a small number of vials.
