Covid-19: Hong Kong plans ‘stronger’ rules to boost jab uptake as city eliminates local infections

Hong Kong plans to introduce more incentives and “stronger guidelines” to encourage Covid-19 vaccine uptake, leader Carrie Lam said on Tuesday.

The government will add more professions to the list of people who must undergo regular testing if they are not vaccinated, including teachers, more front-line civil servants and jobs which require “more interaction with the public.”

“We now need to push hard to push up the vaccination rates to build up herd immunity,” Lam said during a weekly briefing.
