My Hong Kong by Luisa Tam
Should Hong Kong be offering vaccination lottery prizes? Flats, cars and shopping vouchers appeal to people’s pockets, but not to their hearts
- With businesses having to turn to such outrageous perks to get Hongkongers to vaccinate, it does beg the question of why our rates are so low in the first place
- If there is public mistrust or fear of these vaccinations, the money could be better spent on education or winning trust, not this form of financial coercion
