In Israel they give free pizza, coffee and sweets to those who get the vaccine
Pizza, hummus, sweets and coffee were on the menu of vaccination centers in Israel on Tuesday, in an effort to persuade the most cautious citizens to get vaccinated against Covid-19.
In partnership with local restaurants, the municipality of Tel Aviv offered free food and refreshments at two new vaccination centers in the city.
Although Israel is the world leader in vaccinations, authorities are still concerned that young people, who usually do not have complications from the disease, and others who are afraid of vaccines will not come. Thus, they offered as a temptation free pizza, hummus and kiunefe for everyone. And dozens of people gathered.
“We came to be vaccinated, so far we were worried, but due to the upcoming restrictions (for those who do not get the vaccine) we do not have many options. It is also very nice that they offer us pizza and coffee “, said Lizzie Kritzer, a 32-year-old municipal employee.
Israel plans to ease some restrictions on business from Sunday and reopen hotels and gyms for those who have had both doses of the vaccine or gained immunity after recovering from Covid-19. As 43% of the population has already received at least one dose of the Pfizer vaccine, the government is gradually easing the lockdown it imposed on December 27th.
The ambitious mass vaccination program is the largest Pfizer vaccine study in the world, in real life.
Ethan Schwartz, a city spokesman, said the city hoped that free food at the two vaccination centers would create a “family atmosphere” that would attract more reluctant citizens.
“I came today to be vaccinated and I tell everyone to come and be vaccinated for their health,” said Iman Dasui, a 60-year-old teacher, adding meaningfully: “It also has kiunefe here; it is very tasty.”
