Anyone in Switzerland who can convince friends, colleagues or relatives to be vaccinated against the coronavirus should in future receive a voucher worth 50 Swiss francs. Health minister Alain Berset announced it today.

The voucher could be used at a restaurant or when visiting the cinema. To obtain the voucher, it would be enough to give the name of the person who convinced you at the vaccination. The cantons can still decide on the idea. The final decision was scheduled for mid-October. In Switzerland, according to official data, only 58.46% of the population has been fully vaccinated. Too few to drop measures such as wearing the mask, said Berset. He added that the government wants to set up 50 additional mobile vaccination centres. Moreover, from 11 October test will only be free for children and adolescents up to 16 years old and people who have already been vaccinated.
