Londoners are offered the chance to win tickets to the Euro 2020 final if they register for their first COVID jab.

Tickets for the match are currently extremely difficult to find, with predictable demand “through the roof”.

To be eligible, people must prove that they went to a walk-in vaccination center for their first dose or that they have made an appointment.

Those who post on social media about having or reserving a vaccine will be listed twice, a statement from the mayor’s office said.

The online raffle begins Wednesday, with full details on the mayor’s social media.

He’s following similar programs to boost immunization in cities like Toronto and New York.
