A Florida promoter is charging unvaccinated people $999.99 to get into his upcoming show – $18 if you’re vaccinated – in an effort to convince more people to get jabbed
A Florida promoter has come up with a novel way of encouraging people to take up their Covid vaccinations: he’s charging any unvaccinated people $999.99 to get into an upcoming show.
Vaccinated people will be able to purchase tickets to see Teenage Bottlerocket, MakeWar and Rutterkin for a far more reasonable $18.
Paul Williams, the man behind Leadfoot Promotions, hopes it’ll encourage local music lovers to take the vaccine seriously and get jabbed. Speaking to ABC News, he told them: “I also wanted it to be a vaccine drive to get the fence-sitters off the fence. I wanted to get the kids that want to go to shows to go out and get their shots.
“To care about people being safe is very bad apparently,” he says. “You can buy a full-price ticket and you’ll be treated like everyone else.”
