A Melbourne pub offering a free beer after you get vaccinated has been banned from providing the enticing incentive to thirsty patrons by box-ticking bureaucrats.

The hotel was offering those who had been vaccinated to come across and enjoy a free drink on the house, hoping to do their bit to encourage Australians to roll up their sleeves and get jabbed.
One of the pub's owners, Tom Streater, said he hoped higher vaccine rates would lead to less chance of more lockdowns, which have already decimated the Melbourne hospitality industry.
Similar schemes have been very successful in the United States, where people have been offered beer, freebies and even lottery tickets to encourage them to get vaccinated.
