The Chief Medical Officer of Australia (CMO) has proposed that the Government may soon begin offering incentives in return for coronavirus vaccines.
It's no surprise that many people are reluctant to get the vaccine because of the risk of side effects.
However, in comparison to other nations, Australia is lagging behind in vaccine deployment, and it is anticipated that we may miss yet another objective of having everyone vaccinated by the end of the year.
To address this issue, Australia's CMO, Paul Kelly, stated that initiatives to induce Australians to make an appointment are being considered.
"We really do need to look for incentives - as many incentives as we can - for people to become vaccinated," he said this week.
"Some of these incentives will be talked about in coming days and weeks, but I think the main incentive is because it's going to actually protect you, your family, and the community."
In May, the USA implemented the 'Shot and a Beer' program to promote vaccination rates. Recipients were required to take their proof of vaccination card to one of 13 breweries in order to receive a pint of beer.

It's not the only place where you can get a discount on a vaccine.
Free joints were being given out for a jab at the Greenhouse of Walled Lake, a marijuana store in Michigan, while people in Dubai will be offered two weeks of a free gym membership.
Women in the Indian city of Rajkot are receiving free nose rings, and Covid-19 patients in New York will receive free lotto scratch cards with a chance to win $5 million this week.
Free Krispy Kreme doughnuts, free college tuition, and even a vaccine verification badge on dating apps are all available as incentives. The possibilities for freebies are infinite.
The knowledge and idea that you are keeping yourself and your community safe during a pandemic, according to Paul Kelly, is the most compelling reason to obtain the coronavirus vaccine.
