Free chicken wings, free eggs, supermarket vouchers and cash prizes are the incentive used by local authorities and businesses to convince the Chinese population to vaccinate against the coronavirus, The Washington Post reports.
In China, where the first outbreaks of the coronavirus pandemic emerged, vaccinations are slow. Currently, only 4% of the population got vaccinated against coronavirus.
China is ready to vaccinate 40% of the population by the end of June, and more than 64% by 2021.
China's National Health Commission says the country currently has 140 million doses of coronavirus vaccine. In the future, the government plans to produce ten million doses of the vaccine daily. At the moment, three million amounts are manufactured in China every day.
The Chinese government and business representatives are actively campaigning to increase public confidence in the vaccine.
A Chinese restaurant offers free chicken wings to the first 50 customers to get vaccinated against the coronavirus.
In Pingu, a suburb of Beijing, residents were told that those vaccinated against the coronavirus would receive a cash reward of 50 yuan ($ 7.60). In some places, this amount is RMB 100 ($ 15.20).
