This brothel in Vienna wins the award for most creative way of encouraging people to get the COVID vaccination.
Fun Palace are offering anyone thirty minutes with the ‘woman of their choice’ in a bid to improve the vaccination rate in Europe.
Peter Laskaris, manager of Fun Palast, told Reuters:
“Due to the pandemic, we have registered a 50% decrease [in clients], with this initiative we hope that the number of customers will rise again.”
“Basically, I was looking at the statistics and I read that we need like 70/75 percent for us to reach herd immunity, but we’re currently only at 63 percent.
“And then I noticed in the statistics that very many men, very many men with a migration background, virtually refuse vaccination or don’t even know that you can be vaccinated.
“And since we are actually reaching this target group, we decided to set up a vaccination [clinic] here.”
Employees at the brothel think it’s a great idea too.
Mina, who works at Fun Palace, said:
Well, I think it’s a very good idea to have a vaccination street in the Fun Palast, because the name fun palace suggest to have a bit of fun here and return back to normality a bit more.
