Jardine Matheson offers three Mercedes Benz for you to get the jab done

The company will be offering $10m worth of incentives to promote vaccination.

Jardine Matheson will be offering three Mercedes, and shopping, dining staycation vouchers for Hongkong Land, Mandarin Oriental, Maxim’s, Wellcome, Mannings, IKEA, Pizza Hut and KFC for Hong Kongers who will get the COVID-19 vaccine.

The company said this is to support the ongoing vaccination drive in the community, to accelerate the ease of travel restrictions, aid the recovery of the economy, and safeguard the well-being of the people of Hong Kong.

The incentives will be administered through a community lucky draw hosted by the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce (HKGCC).

The lucky draw will be open between July and September for all Hong Kong residents aged 18 or above holding a valid HKID card who have received both doses of their COVID-19 vaccinations at the time they enter the lucky draw. Further details on the lucky draw and full list of prizes will be announced by HKGCC in due course.

In addition to the lucky draw, Jardine Matheson is also supporting COVID-19 vaccination roll-out via a number of staff incentives, which include providing flexibility to employees to take time out during work hours to get vaccinated or bring elderly parents to get vaccinated, up to two additional days of paid vaccination leave following the vaccination, as well as educational webinars with medical experts to help employees make an informed decision on vaccinations.

Aside from Jardine Matheson, Hong Kong companies are rolling out incentives to get more members of the public to get the vaccine. Amongst those incentives are private flights, staycations, dining-vouchers and more.
