Vaccinations in Melbourne just got more rewarding thanks to the City of Melbourne.
The City Council is doing its part for Victoria and Australia via its Vaccine Heroes campaign. It believes that reaching vaccination targets is critical to stopping the cycle of lockdowns that is crippling the economy of the country, state and city.
From Monday 30 August to Sunday 10 October, the organisation is giving away a A$1,000 shopping voucher every day to encourage people to share their vaccine stories on Instagram. The A$1,000 voucher can be spent in Queen Victoria Market, Emporium or Melbourne Central.
There will also be eight bonus $1000 shopping voucher prizes awarded over the six weeks, taking the total prize value of this promotion to $50,000.
Joining is simple. Just follow these steps:
1. Take a selfie showing you are about to get vaccinated, having just been vaccinated or flashing your vaccine card. It can be a photo or a video.
2. Post this selfie on Instagram for photo and Instagram Stories for video and tag the City of Melbourne (@CityofMelbourne)
3. Answer in 25 words or less, what you are most looking forward to doing in Melbourne as more people get vaccinated when Melbourne City reopens.
Lord Mayor Sally Capp hopes this initiative of putting Victoria's vaccine heroes in the spotlight and incentivising others to follow their lead will help Melbourne to reopen quickly and allow people to come together again.
So be a Vaccine Hero today and be in the running to win great prizes.
