Openings in Israel
Special offer in Tel Aviv: Those who get vaccinated get a free drink
Israel wants to convince young people of the Covid-19 vaccination – among other things with free drinks and meals. Even more tempting, however, is the prospect of being able to participate in social life again very soon.
A drink and a spade in the upper arm – that’s what parties look like in Israel these days. While the vaccination campaign against Covid-19 is getting off to a slow start in Germany, vaccination there is in full swing. According to the Ministry of Health, nine million citizens have already received a vaccination, which is more than 40 percent of the total population. Bit by bit, normality and joie de vivre return.
In order to reach as many people as possible with the vaccination, the government is taking sometimes unusual measures. This includes, among other things, vaccinating in bars. In Tel Aviv, the pop-up bar “Jenia” offers this service, reports Israeli media. The re you can get the vaccine quickly, easily and without making an appointment – and then a free drink. Alcohol-free, emphasize the organizers.
Tel Aviv: Young people can get vaccinated in cash
The offer is well received in the Jenia bar. Dozens of young people queued to get their vaccinations and drinks, reports the Times of Israel portal. “If the boys don’t come for the vaccination, the vaccination will come to them,” said Maya Nouri, a member of the Tel Aviv City Council.
In cooperation with the city’s restaurants and bars, several such attractive vaccination offers are currently being created. For example, there was a free snack in one of the restaurants for those who were vaccinated there. Tel Aviv is soon to become the up-and-coming, exciting city it was before the Corona crisis. “We all want to get back to normal life,” said Tomer Moore, chairman of a restaurant owner association for the Jerusalem Post. “
The more people are vaccinated, the more we can get the heart of this city beating again.”
Israel opens with “Green Pass” for vaccinated people
For the time being, drinks or meals are only available to take away with the vaccination offers. However, restaurants and bars in Israel should be allowed to reopen at the beginning of March. Fitness studios, hotels and places of worship will open as early as Sunday, and concerts should be allowed again – but only for vaccinated people. And so it is not primarily free drinks or meals that motivate the population to vaccinate. Anyone who has received two vaccinations against Covid-19 receives a so-called “Green Pass”, a kind of vaccination card on the smartphone, and is allowed to participate in social life again.
