In order to encourage young people to be vaccinated, an Israeli bar has decided to offer “free beers and shots for anyone vaccinated”, reports the Spanish media The confidential. This initiative is carried out jointly with the Ichilov Hospital and Magen David Adom.
“It’s annoying to stand in line when you go to the appointment, but if you invite them for a drink and, while you are there, you offer them the vaccine, they do not refuse it”, specified the manager of the sign whose comments are relayed by Business Insider. In the country, 33% of the population has already received the two doses of treatment against Covid-19, specifies the online newspaper.
Adolescents are reluctant
Adolescents are said to be particularly reluctant to be vaccinated. Only 30% of young people eligible for treatment are said to have done so so far. In recent weeks, the majority of new cases of people positive for the coronavirus concern 75% of a population under the age of 39, reports The confidential.
Other brands are also encouraging people to take the plunge by offering to offer sweets or typical Jewish dishes. Along with these initiatives, Israel has recently implemented intensive prevention campaigns to encourage people to get vaccinated.
