McDonald’s and several other restaurant chains are hopping on the jab benefits bandwagon with free food for vaccinated Thais.
As doses begin to reach the public through small public test sites and return channels with the prospect of wider distribution, the fast food giant has said it will distribute full-size fries. to 50,000 people as of today. All they have to do is show some form of proof that they received at least their first vaccine shot at any store or drive-thru across the country. Branches at airports are excluded.
The gifts arrive at the Golden Arches as well as other chains belonging to the Zen group: Zen, Aka, Din’s, On the Table, Khiang and Tummour. From tomorrow through June 30, customers can get a free salad, soup, dim sum, takoyaki, or rice dish – depending on the restaurant – with their order and proof of vaccination.
To date, Thailand has vaccinated more than 2.2 million people, of whom 1.5 million are receiving their first dose. Mass vaccination will begin in June when royal property Siam Bioscience is expected to roll out the first 6 million doses of locally manufactured AstraZeneca.
People are likely to receive a multitude of benefits as the business world promotes vaccination as a way to get back to normal – and to profitability. Last week, the national Class Cafe chain announced a similar promotion.
