Chippendale stalwart The Lord Gladstone Hotel is joining the growing list of local businesses that are encouraging vaccination by giving away freebies. Now, The Gladdy is reinventing itself as The Lord Jabstone Hotel for the month of September and giving jabbed patrons a free takeaway tinnie can of Young Henrys beer. The beloved pub has even adorned itself with a new sign to mark the occasion. In order to claim your free takeaway tinnie, just head into The Jabstone and show proof of vaccination. The promotion is available for anyone who has received their first jab of any COVID-19 vaccine.

Iconic Sydney restaurateur Luke Mangan has announced that anyone who dines at his flagship restaurant, glass, and can prove they have had the jab will get a free glass of wine for the first three months hospitality is allowed back in business.

A pub in Perth's south is offering free beer to anyone who proves they have received the COVID-19 jab in a bid to get more of the community vaccinated and return to a "new normal" post pandemic. The Windsor Hotel, on Mill Point Road, South Perth, said anyone who provides same-day proof they've had the jab is entitled to a free pint of Ogden's Brewery beer between midday and 6pm.

      Bartenders have been trained to nonchalantly congratulate you and whilst pouring your free beer mention how much safer they feel for having the vax. If you respond with a 30 min dissertation on infection rates, mortality statistics, government conspiracies, the failings of the FDA, the CDC and the intricacies of the drug testing process ending up with you calling the Bartender a sheep and directing him to educate himself, they know you are faking it to get a free beer.

      I think they are simply offering this as a gesture to thank people who are vaccinated rather than actually encouraging people to get vaccinated.

      •  

        Why arent they offering it for people who have had hep B shots? ridiculous

        • +1 vote

          Because Hep B isn't super contagious to the point of walking past someone you will catch it. What's ridiculous is that people are refusing something that is potentially lifesaving not only for themselves, but for the venerable populations who medically cannot take the vaccine.

          •  

            @DavidVox: Yeah while they sneeze in your 90yo face. Otherwise, the viral load would be tiny and insignificant.

            Hep B is a far worse disease.

            •  

              @grasspun: yeah, but the R naught number for Hep B is negligible compared to CV19. And unless you're sharing needles, raw dogging randoms I think your risk of Hep B is quite low. How about we focus on the spirit of these incentives to rewards people coming together in a global pandemic.

                    @DavidVox: At this point it's a principle thing. I think it's laughable that all my friends who were anti establishment, anti gov etc are all now pro medical mandates and talking about which big pharma company is better.
                    If you want to get it, go for it. If you don't, that should be fine too.
                    It's even more laughable that people are now saying vaccinated people need protection from unvaccinated people.

          •  

            @DavidVox: Your argument doesn’t stack up. Take tuberculosis for example, that’s highly infectious and there is a vaccine for it. It’s also really tricky to treat because it can lay dormant in someone’s system before they’re symptomatic.

            I can see you’re also choosing your words carefully when you say the covid vaccine is “potentially” lifesaving; it does not stop infection nor does it stop transmission. The vaccine is also triggering the body to make specific antibodies against the original sars-cov-2 alpha strain, while the dominant strain in Australia is delta, and this was the case even before the mass vaccination drive. Best evidence suggests that from Israel, UK, US they’re seeing large numbers of breakthrough infections of vaccinated individuals where the protection against serious illness is estimated to drop to about 39%.

            as a publican, you have a duty for 'responsible service of alcohol', is the same requirement and responsibility held by those administering the jab?

      Imagine your healthcare decisions are affected in any way by the offer of treats rewards.

      If you've ever bought something at a discount your decisions have been affected by the reward of being able to get something for less.

      No ones getting vaccinated for a free beer. But many vaccinated people are getting free beer.
      Trying to figure out how to spin this into a negative but i just can't.

      Given the amount of people who think covid isn't real or isn't dangerous, or think the vaccine bad because ??? or the vaccine is being used to control us with ??? or that the government needs a special app to track their facebook loving asses? or the people who think their individual rights to whatever they feel like outweighs the rights of the community right to be you know alive or the people who like to claim people are sheep to mainstream media why totting the same exact nonsense as Alan jones/Skynews which is you know part of the Murdoch Empire who hates people more than the government. I'd say yes, there are alot of children in the bodies of adults and shit like this will get them vaccinated. I unfortunately know one to many people who were all against the notion of getting vaccinated for one reason or another then saw them do a complete360 soon it started being announced fully vaccinated people will get to go to the back to the pub when we hit 70%. They don't actually care about it one way or another, they don't care about their freedom, they never actually cared what's in the vaccine, they don't suddenly now care about the what's best for the community. Their initial strategy was to object the lockdown and the vaccine hoping the government/community will cave, that's all, they didn't actual believe in the nonsense they were spouting. Soon as they realized that joining the band wagon was the way to get back to the pub all of a sudden Pro Vaccine and what not. People are really that simple and really that selfish so many who are arguing about freedoms they don't actually give a (profanity) about what the government does, they just want the pub or to go back to meeting rando's on tinder, or to go camping or whatever. So yes if the government/community continually markets the vaccine as a benefit to people selfish interests opposed to the community, it will certainly work. I mean hell start giving bag of coke or meth with the second Jab and watch vaccine rates explode upwards as even the most Anti Covid/Vaxxxer lad who posting endless glady memes on FB will lines up quick smart to get the jabs

            @weezlebub: Doctors don't lose their license for questioning science. The peer review process is literally questioning the science.

            Doctors lose their license for providing false or dangerous advice against their training and/or for their financial gain. e.g. Andrew Wakefield, the vaccines cause autism doctor from the 90s, who suggested that this other vaccine (that he had a financial stake in) didn't cause autism.

      Depends how good your disguises are, but I'd say they'd allow for 2 times first and second jab

        I think it would be highly unlikely that they would remember you from a previous visit, or if you had shown evidence of first or second vaccination.

    Taking initiative and trying to do something that has a positive net benefit for both the community and your business. That's great but this is the internet and you'll be shut down and ridiculed by the toilet researchers, influencer followers and conspiracy susceptible.

    You might get some praise but you'll get a lot of negative push back on your reviews and socials by trolls and fake accounts that are used to push an agenda.

    I work with a few businesses trying to claw back their losses after the pandemic and have found that doing promotions like these work best silently, relying on word of mouth rather than online promotion. Hopefully that doesn't happen but it is a risk.

    All the best.
