The Netherlands is offering free pickled herring if you get your Covid jab
Anyone for some pickled herring?
With the roll out of the COVID-19 vaccine increasing, many countries around the world are coming up with incentives to increase the uptake of the jab. Some of these involve raffles, vouchers – and even cars if you live in Russia.
However in the Netherlands, you get free pickled herring as a post-jab treat. This is a delicacy over there with over 75 million consumed every year, and they're being distributed across the country to act as incentives for those looking to get vaccinated.
Agnes Leewis, director of the Dutch fish marketing board, said: “We can now hopefully trust that everyone in the Netherlands will feel like a ‘new Dutch’ in a very short time”. A herring for a jab. Who could possibly resist?”
