Lucky England fans could win Euro 2020 finals ticket for having Covid jab

FOOTBALL fans can get their hands on a pair of tickets to the Euro 2020 final on Sunday.

All you have to do is live in London and book in for your first jab – if you're still unvaccinated – before tomorrow.

It's part of a push to get as many in the capital, lagging behind the rest of the country, to get protected against Covid.

If you have already booked in and are going to have the first dose tomorrow, that still counts – and you and a lucky pal could be watching the footie in person.

By entering the draw, you could get two tickets to see the big game at Wembley, or watch it from the Trafalgar Square Fan Zone.

There are 50 pairs of tickets going for the fan zone, and only one available to go to the stadium, picked by the Mayor of London.

On Monday the government's chief scientific adviser urged Brits to get their jab as the vaccine helps to "break the link" between cases, deaths and hospitalisations.

Sir Patrick Vallance said: "We are in the middle now of another increase in cases, it's going quite steeply.

"The number of case is increasing, the doubling time is roughly nine days, it's mainly amongst younger people but spreading up the age groups.

"The vaccines have weakened the link between cases and hospitalisations, but it's a weakened link not a completely broken link."

To enter the competition and get protected against the virus, fill out a form showing a proof of booking or jabbing between July 6-8 before 8.59 on Friday.

You must live in London and have booked or received your first jab by the end of tomorrow.

Winners will then be picked at random soon afterwards and will be told if they have struck lucky on the same day.

To double your chances of winning the much sought after tickets, enter twice by posting on social media encouraging others to get the life-saving jab. Screenshot it and then attach it to the form.

Anyone over 18 is now able to get their first vaccine, with countless spots around the country and capital ready and waiting to take bookings.

This weekend Millwall FC is transforming into a vaccination centre, offering Pfizer to people who haven't had a single shot, or had theirs eight weeks ago.

As we race towards Freedom Day on July 19, every adult in the UK has been invited to book in, with experts urging everyone to get jabbed.

The Delta variant, first identified in India, makes up almost every new Covid case in the UK (95 per cent), with cases still rising.

But it only arrived on British soil in mid-April, mostly in international travellers.

It’s biological advantage of being able to spread faster than any other variant allowed it to become rampant.

Vaccines are working to stop most serious illnesses or deaths, but people are still catching the variant fast and so are encouraged to get protected.
