FREEBIES and discounts are being offered out to Brits who are double jabbed.
A number of popular firms are offering incentives to young people and students such as discounts on food and taxi rides if they go out and get their Covid-19 jabs.
Uber was the first to raise the stakes for young people, offering money off food orders or taxi rides if they go out and get the jab.
Other retailers and shops have now joined the push too.
Today, Asda, lastminute.com and National Express were among the list of companies who said they are also offering deals to encourage young people to get the Covid vaccine.
Asda is offering £10 vouchers, lastminute.com is giving out £30 gift cards for summer holidays abroad and National Express is offering 1,000 people a five-day unlimited travel saver ticket.
McDonald's was rumoured to be in talks with the government over the scheme, but so far the fast-food chain has not offered a jab incentive.
Most of the offers will run over the course of the summer to encourage young people to get vaccinated ahead of their return to Uni in September.
Vaccines are available free of charge and from thousands of vaccine centres, GP practices and pharmacies.
It's free to book too, and some sites will offer walk-in appointments as well.
Health Secretary Sajid Javid said today: “With over 84,000 lives already saved and 23 million infections prevented by the vaccines, get the jab as soon as possible and take advantage of these excellent offers – whether that’s for taxi rides, gym passes, or trips away with family and friends.”
It's been previously reported you could find social media competitions will spring up encouraging users to get vaccinated as well as promotional offers for other restaurants.
We can reveal everything we know so far about which companies are flogging freebies to young Brits.
However, details are thin on how to claim a lot of the deals, with more information on how to get them due to be released soon.
We'll update this article when we know more.
Asda will offer £10 vouchers to young Brits if they are double jabbed to spend at its clothing brand, George.
However, you have to spend over £20 in order for the vouchers to work – and they can't be spent online.
You also have to be 18 to 30 years-old to be eligible for the vouchers.
They will be offered at Asda's vaccine pop-up clinics in Old Kent Road in London, Watford and Birmingham.
The vouchers also work on items in the sale, and you must spend them before October 31, which is when they expire.
If you're planning on jetting off this summer, it's worth checking out Lastminute.com's offer for young Brits who are double jabbed.
The company will offer over 18s a £30 gift card to put towards their holiday abroad if they book through the website.
However, it hasn't been confirmed whether there's an age limit on claiming the voucher.
Plus, there's not a lot of detail on how you claim the voucher – or when it expires.
We've asked Lastminute.com for more information and we will update you when we know more.
National Express will be giving out 1,000 free five-day unlimited travel saver tickets to use on buses around the Midlands if you're double jabbed.
To be in with the chance of bagging the freebie, you'll need to download the National Express Coach app, which is free via Google Play or the App Store.
National Express says you can claim your ticket by sharing your vaccine booking references in the company's app – we've asked for more details on exactly how you do this.
The deal will roll out in September, and you must use your ticket within 90 days.
Catching a cab? FREE NOW will be offering up to £1million in free taxi rides for young Brits to get their jabs.
The company will cover the cost of your journey to and from the vaccine clinic you're visiting to get your second jab.
The offer also covers private hire cars and eScooters too.
To get the offer, you must upload your appointment details to the app or on the website.
You can download the FREE NOW app via the App Store or Google Play.
However, make sure the company operates where you live – FREE NOW services are available in Brighton, Edinburgh, London, Manchester, Nottingham, Oxford, Reading Derby and Leicester.
You have until the end of September to claim your free ride.
Uber is offering money off to those who can prove they've got the vaccine in its attempt to aid the government getting brits jabbed.
When the campaign launches this autumn, students will be able to claim £10 in Uber or Uber Eats credit to enjoy a free trip or meal.
All you'll have to do to redeem the free voucher is post a selfie outside a vaccination centre once you've got your jab or you're on your way to your jab.
The offer is available for students but there's no specific age restriction.
It's primarily aimed at younger people who haven't yet had their jab yet, so if that's you then you'll be able to cash in.
We don't know exactly when the campaign will launch but we'll update this page when we know more.
The government has explained how Bolt will be offering free ride credit to certain vaccination centres as part of the push too.
The company will be offering £10 vouchers for 10,000 rides from next week in Birmingham and Leicester so you can get the jab.
However, it is unclear whether Bolt will cover the cost of your ride if it's more than £10.
We've asked for more details about the deal and will update this article when we know more.
So far there have been few details have been given about Deliveroo's jab incentive offer.
Today, it was confirmed that Deliveroo will be handing out £5 voucher to those who get the vaccine in the next few weeks.
But there is no information on how many vouchers will be given out, and whether there's an age limit on who can claim.
We've asked for more details and will update this article when we know more.
It was also previously announced that it will be offering out free meals to staff at vaccine centres to help with the roll-out but the details are still in discussion so more offers could be on the way.
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 has been reported to be in discussion with the government to offer one of its central London sites as a location for drop-in vaccination clinics for staff and the public to receive quick and easy vaccines.
If you visit the site for a jab, a free slice of pizza will be available on the day too.
Thom Elliot, Pizza Pilgrims founder said earlier this month: "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."
Once the centre is up and running you won't have to do anything to redeem the "freebie", apart from show up for your jab, but pizza on the day will, of course, be subject to availability.
It's not available to regular diners either, as it's just being offered out as a gesture to those getting jabbed up.
Vue is also understood to be in talks with the government about offering out money-off incentives, according to The Sunday Times.
You could be able to get a discounted ticket to the movies as the push for younger people to be jabbed in time for term restarting takes place.

But we'll update this story once we know more and can confirm exactly how you'll be able to claim.
