Attracting people towards the vaccination centres to take the vaccine job is the biggest challenge now. To see that people take the vaccine doses, a wide range of gifts like costly cars, gold are being offered.

Hold on, this is not in India, but in Hong Kong. A charitable foundation that belongs to Hong Kong-based Business magnate Li Ka-Shing announced that those who receive two doses of vaccine will be given shopping vouchers worth HK$20 million.

Taking the great initiative, another billionaire Adrian Cheng announced that people with lower income will be given HK$10 million as subsidies if they receive the two doses of the Covid vaccines.

Other companies in the country are offering costly gifts like iPhones, gold bars, Tesla Model 3 cars, apartments, and others. As a result, the vaccination percentage is going up gradually. More and more people are registering themselves for the vaccines.

In addition to this, the government had earlier announced that the civic servants can avail of paid leaves if they take the two doses of the Covid vaccination. The scheme had also paid off.
