Diner in Serbia serves roast meat as thank you to those getting COVID shots Updated: 2021-05-06 09:58:42 KST

Welcome, it's time for the 'World Now'. Bringing you some of the most interesting news from around the globe, I'm Eum Ji-young.
For those of you watching in Serbia, you could be offered a roast meat meal for free if you get a COVID-19 vaccine.
In the Serbian city of Kragujevac, dozens lined up outside a restaurant to get their jab and a plate of charcoal-roasted meat.
The restaurant and tavern owner served popular local dishes, as part of efforts to promote the inoculation drive.
He said, the campaign is also to support the full reopening of the country's restaurants, cafes and bars.
Currently, they can only serve customers outdoors.

"We think that our trade, catering, is particularly hit by this situation and we wish to get back as soon as possible to normal life and work. We are also looking forward to socialising, working and all. And if this is the way to do this, we want to contribute to it."

Local health authorities turned the restaurant's main hall into a vaccination point providing shots developed by Pfizer-BioNtech and China's Sinopharm.
Serbia is going all out to speed up the vaccination drive as the President said on Wednesday that his country would pay each citizen about 30 U.S. dollars if they get their jab before the end of May.
Roughly a third of the country's population of 7 million have received at least one dose.
