Asda has become the first supermarket to offer a reward to young people who receive the COVID-19 vaccine by offering a voucher off clothing at George when 18-30 year olds visit one of their three vaccination centres.
According to the supermarket, people between the ages of 18 and 30 who visit one of the three sites to receive their COVID-9 vaccine will be able to claim £10 off George clothing when they spend £20 or more in any Asda store.
Vouchers will be available at the vaccination sites from the week commencing 23 August and will be valid until 31 October 2021.
Asda has said that this week it has continued its effort to support the vaccination programme by joining an initiative to encourage young people to get their vaccine.
Commenting on the initiative Zoe Matthews, Vice-President of George said,"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.”
COVID-19 Vaccine Centre
Asda became the first supermarket 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 Cape Hill (Birmingham), Watford and Old Kent Road (London).
Health and Social Care Secretary, Sajid Javid said, “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.
"This truly is a national effort and we would not be where we are today – with over 47 million people vaccinated – without the support of the NHS, volunteers, businesses and the people of the UK themselves as we continue to build the wall of defence through every jab given," Javid added.
