Full list of free things those who are double Covid vaccinated can get

More than 38.6million people have had both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine in the UK, while more than 46.8million have had their first.

The government is working hard to make sure everyone takes the opportunity to have their coronavirus jab.

As part of the government's initiative, businesses have joined in an initiative to drive the uptake in young people.

Uber, Bolt, Deliveroo and Pizza Pilgrims are among the brands who are offering incentives to encourage youngsters to het jabbed.

Health and Social Care Secretary Sajid Javid said: "I’m delighted that more than two-thirds of young people in England have already had a first dose of a vaccine, helping to build a wall of defence around our country."

He continued: "Thank you to all the businesses who are stepping up to support this important vaccine drive. Once available, please go out and take advantage of the discounts.

"The lifesaving vaccines not only protect you, your loved ones and your community, but they are helping to bring us back together by allowing you to get back to doing the things you’ve missed."

Uber and Uber Eats

Uber will be sending reminders to all users in August, encouraging them to get the vaccine.

They will also be offering discounted Uber rides for young adults who will get the jab.

When the campaign launches in the autumn, students will also be able to claim £10 in Uber or Uber Eats credit.

All you have to do to redeem the free voucher is post a selfie outside a vaccination centre.

Bolt

Bolt will be offering free ride credit to vaccination centres.

All you need to do is email london@bolt.eu with the subject line "Destination: Vaccination" to use the offer.

Earlier in the year the ride company offered £250,000 in ride credit so people could get to London vaccination facilities.

Sam Raciti, Bolt’s Regional Manager for Western Europe, said: "Bolt is delighted to support this campaign. Get a Bolt, grab a jab, get living."

Deliveroo

Deliveroo will be offering free meals to NHS staff and those working at Covid vaccination centres.

A Deliveroo spokesperson said: "At Deliveroo we want to do our small part to support the NHS during the pandemic, including delivering 1 million free meals to frontline NHS staff and vaccine centres.

"This is the next step in helping get people vaccinated and safely back to normal."

Pizza Pilgrims

Pizza pilgrims is currently in discussion with the government.

The restaurant chain wants to offer its central London sites as a location for drop-in vaccination clinics.

If you visit one of these sites for a jab you will be able to claim a free size of pizza.

Tom Elliot, founder of Pizza Pilgrims, said: "By making getting your jab as easy as grabbing a slice of pizza, hopefully we can help our teams and customers get both their first and second doses as easily and quickly as possible."

"We are lucky enough to have the space and locations that can help make this convenient for people, so are happy to help if we can."

Vue

Due is reportedly also in talks with the government about offering money-off incentives, according to The Sunday Times.

It could be in the form of free screenings, or money off tickets.

However, this has not yet been confirmed.

The positive incentives follow suggestions from ministers that university students may need to be doubled jabbed to attend lectures.

Data from Public Health England (PHE) shows that Covid-19 vaccines are highly effective against hospitalisation from the Delta variant.

According to analysis, the Pfizer vaccine is 96% effective and the AstraZeneca vaccine is 92% effective against hospitalisation after two doses.

At least three million people under 30 are yet to receive their first dose.
