Free meal offer for Malta’s vaccinated receives backlash

Planet Hollywood, a popular St. Julian’s restaurant, announced yesterday that any vaccinated people will be getting a meal for free. This offer however, which sees every fourth main course that is ordered by vaccinated people given for free, raised social media uproar. Many called the offer, which is valid from Monday to Thursday, discriminatory whilst others questioned how the establishment treats its unvaccinated staff. 

Such initiatives are not new as many campaigns, both locally and internationally, were launched in order to incentivise people to receive their jab. Hermanos offered free sides to vaccinated people last May, with other international companies going as far as tying the prize to lotteries. The restaurant did clarify that it still serves and caters to all, with the offer simply being an incentive to help curb the spread of COVID-19.
