BOC Life Partners with EC Healthcare to Launch “Free COVID-19 Pre-vaccination Health Assessment" for Hong Kong Citizens
09 June 2021
BOC Group Life Assurance Co., Ltd. (‘BOC Life’) and EC Healthcare (HKEX Stock Code: 2138) announced their partnership to offer 10,000 “Free COVID-19 Pre-vaccination Health Assessment" to Hong Kong citizens on a first-come first-served basis. This incentive aims at encouraging the public to receive the COVID-19 vaccination, and help them get prepared before taking the vaccines. Together, we could boost the vaccination take-up rate while acting as a good corporate or individual citizen, to help Hong Kong become COVID-19 free.
Some people are hesitant to receive the COVID-19 vaccines. For example, those who do not conduct regular medical check-ups may worry about having early chronic diseases that are unnoticed. Or sometimes people who have hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and hyperlipidemia either do not attend their medical appointments regularly or not follow up with their doctor on their health conditions. All these will deter them from getting vaccinated. This program is designed to address the mentioned needs of the Hong Kong citizens who wish to take the vaccines, and help them better understand their current and potential health situations, as well as the risks and side effects of the COVID-19 vaccines, get them well prepared before getting vaccinated.
All eligible participants must be 18 years old or above and holding a valid Hong Kong identity card. Starting from 16 June 2021, eligible Hong Kong citizens can register and make an appointment on the exclusive online platform of the program. The quota of the incentive is 10,000, open for enrollment while quota is available.
Wilson Tang, Chief Executive of BOC Life, said, "BOC Life always cares about our society, and we fully support this program by sponsoring our partner EC Healthcare to provide the complimentary pre-vaccination health assessment to the public under the partnership. This program will help those who wish to get vaccinated understand about their health status through professional assessment. We encourage people to receive COVID-19 vaccination, which is the key to resuming normal life, and enable us to build a protective barrier together towards a Covid-19 free Hong Kong."
Mr. Eddy Tang, Chairman, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of Union Medical Healthcare said, “EC Healthcare is Hong Kong's largest non-hospital medical service provider. The Group will continue to use its unique closed-loop ecosystem of businesses to reform the traditional business model of the medical and healthcare market through corporatization, information integration and platformization. The Group is glad to corporate with BOC Life, using our medical expertise as well as staying at the forefront of the fight against the epidemic, taking our social responsibility and increase the community vaccination rate in Hong Kong so as to push Hong Kong towards zero infection.”
The "Free COVID-19 Pre-vaccination Health Assessment" jointly provided by BOC Life and EC Healthcare will open to all eligible Hong Kong citizens subject to terms and conditions.
