The Greek government will offer a pre-paid card with 150 euros to young people aged 18-25 to get at least one shot of a vaccine against Covid-19, as an incentive to increase the number of inoculations.
Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis presented this prepaid card during his meeting with his government ministers today and said: “He acknowledges the burden caused by the long months of lockdown on the social life of young people.
This card (reward) will cover costs in travel and entertainment, such as plane and ship tickets, hotel reservations, music, theater, cinema, and museums.
He explained that this card is a gift of gratitude to the youth and a “thank you” to them for their patience, but at the same time it constitutes an incentive for them to get the vaccine, the more the youth group is immune to the virus, the more the state can prevent its spread.
The prepaid card will be available from the end of next month, and those wishing to obtain it can submit an application on the Greek government’s online platform the day after they receive the first dose of the Corona vaccine.
