Today we had a visit from the Minister of Health, Robin Swann, to practice his latte art ahead of our FREE COFFEE WEEKEND! As part of the Department of Health’s ‘Big Jab Weekend’, we’re offering our wonderful customers a free tea or coffee with their food order when they show their vaccination card at the till. This initiative was created to encourage young people to recieve their COVID-19 vaccination to path the way for NI return to normalcy and stop the spread of the coronavirus. The free coffee weekend was created to support the Big Jab Weekend initiative.
Check out the skills:
One quick demonstration was all it took before the Minister of Health was pouring his own flat white. He then thanked the team in Ballymena Bob & Berts for helping the public effort to beat COVID-19 by holding this huge promotion over the weekend.
‘The Big Jab Weekend promotion on 21/22 August will see Northern Ireland’s mass vaccination centres once again offering walk-in first jabs for all adult age groups.
That’s on top of ongoing vaccinations at walk-in pop-up clinics across Northern Ireland, and at participating community pharmacies.
NI’s mass vaccination centres will soon be winding down their work after nine months of intensive activity. They ceased offering first doses to the general population at the end of July, but are returning to that role for this weekend. That is part of a big push to get as many people protected from COVID-19 as possible.
The ‘Big Jab Weekend’ will be the last chance for anyone aged 18 and over to get their first jab at a mass vaccination centre.’
