Sometimes, it’s hard to get people to vaccinate.
But action is built on incentive, and an Austrian enterprise has erected quite the system.
As relayed by Sky News, Fun Palast is running a provocative promotion related to getting poked.
The Vienna business is a brothel, and it’s providing a free sampling of wares for those willing to accept immunization.
According to the outlet, “Vaccine uptake levels in Austria are among the worst in western Europe.”
But the Palast is handling hesitance with a stroke of genius:
In exchange for a jab, visitors get a free 30-minute session in a “sauna club” with the “lady of their choice.”

The endeavor is helping boost business.
Fun Palast told DailyMail.com COVID had caused a sales slump:
“Due to the pandemic, we have registered a 50 percent decrease [in clients]…”
“[W]ith this initiative, we hope that the number of customers will rise again.”
And the public health apparatus will appreciate it.
The country reported 9,943 cases within a 24-hour period on Saturday, surpassing the previous worst day of 13 November 2020 when 9,586 were recorded.
Those who haven’t been injected are banned from hairdressers, restaurants, and cafes.
Essentially, Austria’s putting the “need” in “needled.”
Those who patron the Palast can trade “ill” for “thrill.”
And in case you were wondering, the establishment’s encouraging both guys and gals to take part.
But don’t be bewildered if more men clip the coupon.
Manager Peter Laskaris put Reuters in the know:
“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,” he explained.
One of Fun Palast’s caretakers, Mina, hearkened to happiness:
“Well, I think it’s a very good idea to have a vaccination street…because the name ‘Fun Palace’ suggests to have a bit of fun here and return back to normality a bit more.”
“And I also think it’s a great idea that this is being offered for women, children, and of course men,” she added.
Boys as young as 14 are reportedly allowed access to the clinic, provided they have an adult with them, while women are also being encouraged to head to the Fun Palast for a coronavirus shot.
To be fair, the Palast isn’t the first adult-oriented entity to devise a COVID-savvy scheme.
And in the area of inoculation:

Of course, the prospect of getting COVID is enough to cause some people stress, and getting the shot might well tamp down tension.
But something tells me those who get plunged at Fun Palast will end up more relieved than most.
