Unlike the launch of a new iPhone model, going to a vaccination center might take more than just a little convincing to get people to follow the line. This is why the Hong Kong government and private institutions have dangled more than just a few incentives and sweeteners to encourage people to get vaccinated.
From cash vouchers to a year’s worth of free hotel stay, various sweeteners are on offer for vaccinated Hong Kong residents. How do free meals for life sound? Or a chance to win a flat worth HK$10 million? There are just so many lottery prizes available that we have a summary of them to save you the trouble of tracking them down.
Even if you don’t win these prizes, you are already a winner of the protection vaccines provide.
