Asda has become the first supermarket to offer an incentive to young people who receive the Covid-19 vaccine.
The Big 4 retailer is offering customers a £10 voucher off clothing at George when 18-30 year olds visit one of their three vaccination centres.
The supermarket became the first in the UK to open a Covid-19 vaccine centre in January 2020 and has since administered over 90,000 vaccines in vaccination clinics in three of its stores in Birmingham, Watford and London.
The offer will be available from August 23 until October 31 and is redeemable with any purchase of £20 or more in an Asda store.
“Asda was the first supermarket to offer a dedicated vaccine clinic in the UK and we’re proud to have offered 90,000 vaccines through our three vaccine centres since January”, vice-president of George Zoe Matthews said.
“In keeping with our commitment to doing all we can to support the vaccination programme against Covid-19 we’re delighted to be offering £10 off any George purchase over £20 to young people who visit one of our three vaccine centres for their Covid-19 jab.
“It’s our way of saying thank you to them for doing their bit to keep our communities safe – and means they can look great as well as feel great about doing the right thing.”
Health and Social Care Secretary Sajid David added: “It is fantastic to see more companies backing the phenomenal vaccine rollout and joining the public as they do everything they can to continue protecting their loved ones, themselves, their community and this country.
“With over 84,000 lives already saved and 23 million infections prevented by the vaccines, get the jab as soon as possible and take advantage of these excellent offers – whether that’s for taxi rides, gym passes, or trips away with family and friends.”
