Kebabs for jabs: Uber and Deliveroo will offer young adults cheap food in exchange for a Covid vaccine - as a Pfizer booster is made available for the over-50s and clinically vulnerable​

  • Uber, Deliveroo and Pizza Pilgrims are in discussion about offering jab incentives
  • Only two-thirds of people aged 18-30 in England have had first dose since June
  • In plan, Uber will offer discounts for under-30s in cars and takeaway services
  • Other companies will be offering vouchers or discount codes for food and films




Young adults will be lured into vaccination centres with the promise of cut-price taxis and takeaways, as Boris Johnson tries to tackle the relatively low take-up among the under-30s.
Uber, Deliveroo and Pizza Pilgrims are among the companies in discussion with the Government about offering incentives as part of the 'Jab 18-30' drive.
So far, only two-thirds of people in that age bracket in England have received a first dose since they became eligible in June, compared with 88.4 per cent across all age groups, meaning more than three million 18-to-30-year-olds remain unjabbed.

I have seen similar offers to entice the non-vaxxers here in the U.S. Money, a chance to win a trip and free lunch have been offered in my area.

It’s the same here!

Give everybody a cookie and a trophy for getting vaccinated!

It’s shocking to me that we need to offer incentives to people but I suppose it’s cheaper than having the taxpayers pay the hospital and funeral costs for these folks.

They were discussing the take up of the young adult population or lack of it on the radio this week... and it was suggested that one way to get them to come in their droves, was to prevent them being permitted entry to nightclubs and pubs.....and the second suggestion was to charge everyone ( not just the young) for the vaccine , £200 as from a near future date ... and the thought behind it being that everyone who is capable of having the vaccine will rush to have it while it's free..

The third more concerning suggestion was that the public should be told that there will be no free NHS treatment for anyone who contracts C-19 or it's variations... if they have not had the vaccine.. , and will be responsible for the full cost of their treatment.. 😲

Can they do that Holly? Charge young people for the vaccine, or even threaten to? I guess they can do anything. They're proving that.
