Tel Aviv bar offers free drinks along with Pfizer vaccine
TEL AVIV (ISRAEL) – On Thursday, a bar in Israel suddenly became a vaccination centre where free drinks were provided to those who got the jabs.
The health ministry said that more than 43% percent of the 9 million residents have received at least one dose of the Pfizer vaccine. However, officials are worried about the turnout waning and withholding plans to reopen the economy.
Although many bars were forced to close because of the virus, Jenia gastropub in Tel Aviv opened its doors to welcome patrons who came to take the shot prompted by the offer of free drinks.
As a precautionary measure, the drinks were non-alcoholic.
“I thought it is a really good opportunity to come and get the vaccine, because I didn’t have either the time or the ability to go to other places,” said May Perez, one of the patrons.
