Some 1.3 million workers from various industries can start making appointments for coronavirus vaccines after they were also given priority by the government.

These include teachers, public transport drivers, restaurant staff, couriers, construction workers as well as people working in gyms, beauty parlours, and wet markets. The government said more people were given priority because there are sufficient jabs and these workers are at a higher risk of contracting Covid-19. Meanwhile, the government imposed an ambush lockdown on a block in Tsim Sha Tsui on 8 March. It had been two weeks since the last ambush lockdown.
