OFFERING young people cut-price fast food if they get jabbed has been branded a panic move by MPs.
The vouchers for vaccine scheme will see companies such as Uber Eats, Deliveroo and Pizza Pilgrims give discounts to customers who get a vaccine in a push to protect more young Brits.

It is aimed at heading off a Tory revolt against Covid passports for access to nightclubs or football matches.
One senior MP said: “One minute they tell us pizza is bad for us — now they’re handing them out.

Tory ex-minister Steve Baker said: “It would be simpler just to pay them a straight fee.”
Only two thirds of 18 to 29-year-olds have had their first jab.
