FREE fries, cows, gold chains, chicken and much more for those vaccinated against Covid19 virus in Thailand
In order to convince residents to get vaccinated against Covid19 virus, many Thai provinces and companies are starting to offer incentives to those applying for vaccination.
The Mae Chaem district in Chiang Mai province was the first to launch a campaign to abandon a calf every week, leading the way to get vaccinated against the virus in the district. According to the district chief, the calf is worth 10,000, noting that the campaign would last 24 weeks.
By now, more than 4,000 people in priority groups, including those over 60 and those with health problems, are said to have already signed up for their vaccination, Boonlue added.
Other provinces and many private companies in Thailand have also come up with similar incentives to boost registration, such as giveaways, coupons, or cash payouts.
The Phon District of Khon Kaen Province is also offering gold necklace giveaways for three lucky vaccinated residents. Anyone who has been vaccinated will receive coupons that can also be used at over 30 local stores in the district.
Major fast-food companies also offer free dishes to their vaccinated customers once they present the vaccine certificate to staff. McDonald’s Thailand offers free fries, and Texas Chicken Thailand offers free chicken to customers across the country. Thailand is ramping up its vaccination efforts against Covid-19 even as a major round of infections, mainly in and around Bangkok, wreaks havoc on the economy.
