Insurance firm to thank vaccinated with goodie bags
An insurance firm is to give away health goodie bags to people who have been vaccinated against Covid-19.
CG Insurance said the move was designed to thank people who had got the jabs.
Beth Frazier, CG’s chief operating officer for health, said: “This is simply our way to say thank you to those who’ve taken this step to help stop the spread of the virus, and to encourage others to do the same.
“It’s about getting our community and economy healthy again and it starts with each of us.”
Ms Frazier told the public: “When you get vaccinated, you are protecting yourself, your loved ones, your neighbours, your colleagues, your friends and, ultimately, your community.”
She added: “We respect that everyone has a choice and hope that through people’s decision to get the vaccine that Bermuda’s recovery will be swift and successful.”
The wellness bags contain an infrared thermometer, a pulse oximeter and an adult-sized mask.
The bags will be available to people aged 18 years and over with a Government-issued vaccination card.
They will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis while supplies last, with a limit of one bag a household.
The bags will be handed out on Thursday and Friday between 9am and noon at CG’s headquarters on Reid Street, Hamilton.
A spokeswoman said: “It has been proven that individuals getting vaccinated is the most direct way to get our global economies and communities on the road to recovery from the crippling effects of the pandemic.
“Bermuda is no exception and each resident has a part to play to get the island back on track, from following government regulated Covid-19 guidelines to opting to get the vaccine.”
