A Perth pub is offering a free pint to people who get vaccinated against COVID-19, but the offer only applies on the day of the shot.
South Perth’s Windsor Hotel has announced they are giving away a free pint of Ogden’s Brewery beer to those who can prove they have had their jab.
The promotion runs between 12pm-6pm daily.
The move comes hot on the heels of a similar one in Melbourne, which was shot down by the Therapeutic Goods Administration.
The Prince Alfred Hotel was offering free pints to those who had received their shot, but the TGA called the pub and warned them about regulations that prevent using ‘alcohol, tobacco or registered medicines’ as incentives to get vaccinated.
But Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the move was a bit ‘heavy-handed’ and said he would ‘get it sorted’.
Now The Windsor is having a go, with the promotion beginning on Saturday.
Perth punters considering a jab now have the choice of two drinks after getting a shot at one of the city’s vaccination hubs: a juice box, or a pint of Ogden’s finest.
Or, they could have both.
