    More than a year on, the coronavirus pandemic has hardly showed any signs of dying down. Thankfully, a number of vaccines are now available for public use, but people are not legally obliged to be immunised against the virus. How can those still hesitating getting a shot be convinced to do so?

    Governments and companies across the world have resorted to creative and non-conventional means in a bid to incentivise a greater number of people to get inoculated, including through PR stunts, such as promising a free beer or a doughnut for those who get a jab.

    Meanwhile, others attempt to motivate people to get inoculated by setting up vaccination centres in the most unusual of places.

    Sputnik has compiled pictures of the most unconventional COVID vaccination sites, ranging from strip clubs to malls and sports arenas, in our latest photo gallery. Make sure to check it out!
