Chippendale stalwart The Lord Gladstone Hotel is joining the growing list of local businesses that are encouraging vaccination by giving away freebies. If you've been vaccinated, you can make the most of promotions including hotel room upgrades, cheap sneakers and frequent flyer points. Now, The Gladdy is reinventing itself as The Lord Jabstone Hotel for the month of September and giving jabbed patrons a free takeaway Young Henrys beer. The beloved pub has even adorned itself with a new sign to mark the occasion.

"We know the quickest way back to a thriving pub again is through vaccination, we back our doctors and scientists and wanna show our support to all the legends doing their part for the greater community," owner Mitch Crum says.

In order to claim your free takeaway tinnie, just head into The Jabstone and show proof of vaccination. The promotion is available for anyone who has received their first jab of any COVID-19 vaccine.

If you need more motivation to swing past Chippendale, you can pick up a meal from the pub's excellent takeaway menu. Swing past on a Thursday to take advantage of its $12.50 steak night, or come by on a Saturday for slow-smoked charcoal chicken or pork rib packs. The inner city mainstay's menu also features a range of pub classics, burgers, salads and tacos.

Other pubs offering free beers to encourage vaccination include Rozelle's Bald Rock Hotel and the Prince Alfred Hotel down in Melbourne. Earlier this month, Hawke's Brewing Co also hosted a giveaway, offering 'slabs for jabs' to vaccinated Sydneysiders.

NSW's path out of stay-at-home conditions is tied to vaccination rates, with more restrictions set to relax when the state hits 70-percent and 80-percent double doses. These thresholds are in line with Australia's overall 'National Plan to transition Australia's National COVID Response' that was announced in July, which steps through how the country aims to move away from lockdowns, temper restrictions for fully vaxxed folks and handle COVID-19 cases moving forward.

To find out more about the status of COVID-19 in NSW and to have a look at the COVID-19 vaccination map, head to the NSW Government website. You can also keep up-to-date with the latest restrictions including mask-wearing and travel limitations via the NSW Health website.

The Lord Gladstone is located at 115 Regent St, Chippendale and is open 11am–8pm Wednesday–Saturday for takeaway throughout Sydney's lockdown.
