Hamilton Princess vaccination clinics offer incentives to get the jab
The Hamilton Princess has set up a pop-up vaccination clinic this week – and the hotel has offered incentives to people who want to get the jab.
A spokeswoman for the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club said the hotel’s Princess Ballroom was transformed into a walk-in vaccination centre between 3pm and 7pm from today to Friday.
The spokeswoman said that, in addition to the Covid-19 vaccine, those people who attend will be able to enjoy mango lemonade and chocolate chip cookies from The Duchess Café and Gelateria during their 15-minute observation period.
She added: “For those looking for a reason to get their first jab over the next few days, the Hamilton Princess is putting its signature indulgent stamp on the event.
“Each person who receives a vaccine on site will be given a 50 per cent discount voucher for Crown & Anchor’s famous Sunday brunch – valid for two people until September 1- and will be entered into an exclusive daily draw solely for those who were vaccinated at the pink palace.
“Prizes in this raffle include, each day, a weekend stay in a Gold room at the resort, a $500 grocery voucher and two $50 vouchers from the MEF Group, whose restaurants include the Fourways Inn, L’Oriental and Little Venice.
“There will also be a two night staycation and round of golf for two at Newstead Belmont Hills in a final draw from the three days of the vaccination pop-up initiative.”
The spokeswoman said people vaccinated at the hotel would also be given $50 vouchers provided by the Frontline Foundation, which can be used at one of 65 participating businesses.
The gift cards will also be matched with a gift card for a frontline worker to support those who have worked to keep Bermuda safe.
People who attend the vaccination centre will need to bring a valid ID with a photograph.
Tim Morrison, the general manager of the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club and president of the BHA, said: “Hamilton Princess is proud to do its part in supporting the Department of Health in providing easy to access and convenient locations for its pop up vaccination clinics.
“With the summer season upon us and tourism returning to the island, it’s incredibly important to ensure that as many of us are vaccinated as possible to maximise the safety and well being of our community.”
The rewards are in addition to the recently announced Back to Business Community Giveaway – organised by the Bermuda Hotel Association and the Bermuda Health Council – which will include people who get the vaccine in special raffles.
Stephen Todd, the CEO of the BHA, said: “Our association members welcomed the opportunity to partner with the Bermuda Health Council and our member property, the Hamilton Princess, in both promoting and encouraging members of the public as well as our hotel industry colleagues, to receive their vaccinations.
“Our sincere thanks go out to everyone who participated in making this promotion of the pop-up vaccination clinic possible.”
