“Protection Against Side-Effects from COVID-19 Vaccines”
We're in this together
It may be a bit premature to say the worst is behind us, but it is much welcomed news that vaccines to fight COVID-19 are now gradually being rolled out. Although uncertainties remain about the virus and how the world will recover post-pandemic, the end is in sight. As a homegrown next-generation insurer, OneDegree’s priority is always our home city. To support Hongkongers through this challenging time, OneDegree is now offering free protection against potential side-effects from COVID-19 vaccines. Under the protection, residents who are hospitalized or pass away will receive a one-time payment.
OneDegree is committed to helping our communities shoulder the risks that comes with life, big or small. We’re in this together.
For all Hong Kong residents
