It was last June when I got my second dose of COVID vaccine. Given that I will be traveling soon, choosing to get vaccinated was a no-brainer.

As it turns out, getting vaccinated not only prevents you from having severe complications from COVID but you can also enjoy discounts and freebies from restaurants and shops.

Based on personal experience, I have used my vaccination card to get a FREE upsize at The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf and UCC Cafe. I also enjoyed a 10% discount at Salad Stop for a minimum purchase of 500php.

There are a lot more participating shops to encourage people from getting vaccinated and these deals will last until the end of the year. So don’t think about it anymore. Let’s put an end to this pandemic and get vaccinated sooner than later.

Here’s another tip for you — as soon as you’re done with your second dose, make duplicates of your vaccination card and have them laminated. Use the duplicates when going to shops or restaurants and keep the original copy at home.
