TRENTO. It is no coincidence that the initiative is called «Long night of the vaccine»: in Vienna, the Funpalast meeting house offers newly vaccinated people a voucher of 30 euros to spend in the club.
In short, in neighboring Austria we go far beyond what is organized in South Tyrol, where after vaccination a snack with bread and sausage was offered, during the Vaxbus stop in front of the Forst brewery near Merano.
To return to Vienna, apparently that of the purchase voucher by gender is a proposal addressed above all (but not only) to foreign workers, who would represent a significant portion of the customers.
“Due to the pandemic we have registered a 50% decrease, with this initiative we hope that the number of customers will rise again », they explain to the appointment house.
The Kurier newspaper, in spreading the news, underlines that the brothel is located in the immediate vicinity of the monument of the painter Gustav Klimt and reports the suggestion given by the owner of the Funpalast: “When you return home, as an excuse for the delay you can tell that you have been vaccinated nearby. to the Klimt monument ».
In Switzerland too, ways of promoting vaccinations are being studied, given that at the moment the confederation remains under the coverage of 60% of the eligible population.
The government, as part of a more general plan, has also announced the possible introduction of a bonus of 50 francs (about 46 euros), intended for people who convince another to get vaccinated.
In short, a campaign on the model well known in the world of mobile telephony “bring a friend and you will receive a bonus”.
While waiting to define the “promotional” initiative, the elevetic authorities last Monday, 11 October, made the tampons for a fee: they remain free only for citizens under 16 and for those waiting for the second dose of vaccine.
«Switzerland has a low vaccination rate. We need to make further progress and the quota needs to increase significantly in the run up to Christmas. Today, each covid shelter costs the public purse about 50,000 francs. About 50 million francs a week are spent on tests, ”said Federal Councilor Alain Berset, head of health.
