Tradies who need another incentive to get vaccinated will be rewarded with a beer and a burrito at a pop up drive through in Fyshwick this weekend.
The Fyshwick Business Association has teamed up with Master Builders ACT to help boost vaccine rates and keep the construction industry out of future lockdowns.
The temporary vaccination clinic will be set up in the Master Builders car park on Saturday with staff from the Kenolta Medical Centre delivering the jabs.
Tradies who make the trip for their AstraZeneca shot will receive a beer and burrito voucher courtesy of Jim Murphy's Market Cellars and Guzman y Gomez for their efforts.
The temporary facility follows an initial drive through pop up held at Dirty Janes in Fyshwick last week, the first of its kind for the ACT.
Fyshwick Business Association president Rob Evans said lockdowns had been difficult for businesses in the area and owners knew vaccines were key to ending them.
"Many of our members are in construction and keen to see all workers fully vaccinated as soon as possible, particularly their contractors and sub-contractors who might be working across more than one site," Mr Evans said.
"We learnt from our pop up trial last week that some people aren't able to make a booking for a range of reasons, so being able to just turn up for a vaccination worked really well."
The ACT is set to reach a new milestone in its vaccination efforts overnight, with 50 per cent of the population over 16 years old fully vaccinated.
By comparison, the national vaccination rate for the adult population is 40 per cent.
The pop up vaccination hub will be held this Saturday from 9am to 2pm in the car park of Master Builders ACT at 1 Iron Knob Street, Fyshwick.
