George at ASDA have pledged their support for the UK’s COVID-19 vaccination programme by offering incentives to vaccinated customers aged between 18-30 years old.
Asda joins lastminute.com, National Express, FREE NOW taxis and Better leisure centres, who have announced they will be offering discounts to people who get a COVID-19 vaccine, joining the national effort to protect the country as it continues its cautious return to normality.
Asda will offer £10 vouchers for their clothing brand George to 18 to 30 year olds who spend over £20.
The vouchers will be offered at the vaccine pop-up clinics located in Old Kent Road in London, Watford and Birmingham.
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. With over 84,000 lives already saved and 23 million infections prevented by the vaccines, get the jab as soon as possible and take advantage of these excellent offers – whether that’s for taxi rides, gym passes, or trips away with family and friends."
Zoe Matthews, Vice-President of George, added: "Asda was the first supermarket to offer a dedicated vaccine clinic in the UK and we’re proud to have offered 90,000 vaccines through our three vaccine centres since January. In keeping with our commitment to doing all we can to support the vaccination programme against COVID-19 we’re delighted to be offering £10 off any George purchase over £20 to young people who visit one of our three vaccine centres for their COVID-19 jab.
"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."
