Secretary for the Civil Service also called on private companies to offer similar incentives.

Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip, speaking at a press conference, also called on private companies to offer similar incentives to ramp up the lacklustre take-up ratio of vaccines in the global financial hub.
