As of December 14th, Bulgaria has the lowest COVID-19 jab uptake in Europe.
According to Statista, the Balkan country ranks dead last at 51.09 doses per 100 population.
Just before Christmas, Bulgaria introduced the vaccination bar to entice hesitant citizens to take their jabs.
Located in Sofia, the bar is the only spot in Bulgaria where customers walk out with a COVID-19 health certificate instead of requiring one for entry.

The bar is the only place in Bulgaria where people do not need a health certificate to get in, but where they will leave with one after getting the vaccine.
“It’s very fun because sometimes people come for a consultation, too. They can have fun while getting vaccinated and they are not just on a conveyor belt and just strung along,” Dr Svilen Donev, a member of the medical staff administrating the vaccine, revealed.
“It’s better for us because we have more fun vaccinating, and for them because they are happier being vaccinated,” Donev said.
Only 27,3 per cent of Bulgarians are fully vaccinated due to the strong mistrust in the COVID-19 vaccines.
