LettersCoronavirus lucky draws: why not use one app to help Hongkongers keep track?
- It has become difficult to keep up with the different incentive schemes and tedious to enter personal information several times. The government’s iAM Smart app could be deployed to make the process more efficient
In response to my inquiry, the office says it welcomes the commercial sector and organisations using the app in their registration or identity verification process. The office will provide technical support in verifying the vaccination records of the participants of the promotional activities.
While the relevant parties could contact the office for further information, I also urge the government to promote iAM Smart more proactively by creating a one-stop web page for vaccinated residents to enter all lucky draws using the app.

Make vaccination mandatory for some sectors
To start with, people in health care services of all kinds – including physicians, nurses, attendants at senior homes and those in catering and food services as well as education – should be required by the government to get vaccinated against Covid-19. Enough reliable information regarding the benefits of being vaccinated compared with any potential negative effects is available.
