One may be inclined to say that there is no shortage of ideas when it comes to incentivizing people to get their COVID-19 vaccine, as door prizes have become the latest plan to drive up vaccination rates in Klungkung, Bali.
In an effort to encourage people to get vaccinated, police officers in Klungkung have reportedly been distributing door prize coupons among local residents. They are in line to win some mighty attractive prizes, including a motorbike and a bicycle.
“We will draw [the coupons] in November or December,” Klungkung Precinct Chief I Made Dhanuardana said.
Spearheaded by Klungkung Precinct, the incentive program appears to be a collective effort with unidentified private parties, aimed at boosting the region’s vaccination rate. So far, it appears to be effective, as many residents have reportedly gone to the local vaccination center to get a jab, eager to get their chance at winning the prizes.
Bali is actually not doing too shabby when it comes to vaccinating its population, with more than 3.2 million people having already gotten their first jab, and over 2.2 million people fully vaxxed, according to provincial data published on Sept. 15. The province’s vaccination rate is the second highest in Indonesia, just after Jakarta.
