In an effort to encourage more people to get vaccinated against COVID-19, the Bell Centre and the Montreal Canadiens are offering free hot dogs to whoever gets vaccinated before Game 3 on Friday and Game 4 on Sunday.

A vaccination clinic will be open outside the Bell Centre before both games, offering the hot dogs as a vaccination perk.

Quebec’s Health Minister Christian Dubé made the announcement outside the Bell Centre on Wednesday, wearing a Habs jersey.

While answering questions in a #22 Cole Caufield jersey, Dubé agreed that hot dogs are symbols of both Quebec and the Montreal Canadiens.

The Canadiens are also using incentives to get people vaccinated. The 20-year-old Caufield said the team is giving away 22 Caufield jerseys and 22 pairs of 2021-2022 game tickets to Quebecers aged 18 to 29 who show proof of vaccination.

“You guys know I love taking my shots, now it’s your turn,” said Caufield in a Canadiens video shared on social media.
