New vaccine lottery: Tasmania will distribute Apple products to teenagers and plans to disintegrate

The Tasmanian Prime Minister introduced a new vaccine lottery at a press conference. Any teenager who comes for the first or second dose of covid vaccine will be able to compete for an iPad, iPhone and smart watch. The government in the vaccination campaign, which was pointed out by the server DailyMail, buys fifty products from Apple.

Applicants will be given five days in Tasmania, Australia, to be vaccinated with any of the approved and recognized vaccines. According to Prime Minister Peter Gutwein, the event will begin on Saturday. “If you are between 12 and 18 and have the first or second dose of the vaccine by 24 November, you will be entered into a draw for the iPad and iPhone or the Apple Watch, “ specified.

The local government decided to take the step after interest in the vaccine began to decline slowly. “We’ve had some debates about what we can do to raise the numbers vaccinated again.” Gutwein explained. During the press conference, he warned that if interest does not increase in the coming days, the country will hardly reach its pre-set goal.

Opening borders and dismantling for regulars

The state’s representatives want to be able to give both doses to 90 percent of all people over the age of 12 by December 15, when they will open the borders to all tourists with completed vaccinations. “I don’t want to look back on December 16th and say to myself: ‘Oh yeah, I wish I did a little more,’ “ Gutwein stated.

The country will require tourists to take a negative test, which must not be older than 72 hours. They avoid this rule only people traveling from countries with minimal risk of infection. The government wants to relax some preventive measures as early as the sixth of December, for example in connection with dancing and drinking alcohol in bars.

In the country, 84 percent of people over the age of 16 have completed vaccinations, 92 percent experienced at least one dose. However, the group between the ages of 12 and 15 does not show such a high interest in vaccinations – only half of them are fully vaccinated, 68 percent received at least one dose.
