Greece offers money incentives to doctors, pharmacists to persuade people to get a jab

Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias announced Friday incentives to doctors and pharmacists in order to persuade as much as possible citizens to get vaccinated.

Speaking to Open TV, Kikilias said that the pharmacists and the doctors will get 10 euros when they book a vaccination appointment. He also added that doctors that will vaccinate patients at their office is increased from 3 to 20 euros while those who will vaccinate bedridden patients will receive 50 euros.

“The government has trust in the health personnel and calls on all our compatriots to get vaccinated as the Delta variant is aggressive and spreads easily” he said.

PS Not sure if that’s the right tactic. It may backfire with anti-vaxxers to claim they do vaccinations for the money.
