OXFORDSHIRE’S singletons will be encouraged to get their Covid jab on their quest for love, as the Government is now using dating apps to encourage young people to get vaccinated against coronavirus.
Tinder, Match, Hinge, Bumble and Plenty of Fish users will now be rewarded with free premium features like ‘super likes’ if they choose to display their vaccine status on their dating profiles.
The companies’ partnership with the Government comes as a recent YouGov poll reveals that nearly 60 per cent of adults would either prefer their date to be vaccinated or would not date someone unwilling to be jabbed.
As Tinder, Hinge and Bumble join the Covid-19 vaccine campaign, here are the areas in Oxfordshire with the most vaccinated residents based on the latest data from Thursday.
