It is a part of the multi-agency campaign that aims to have 90 per cent of Canterbury's population jabbed with at least one dose of the vaccine by Labour weekend.

"No incentive should be needed to do the right thing for our country so look at this as a reward for being a good team player," a post on the business's Facebook page said.

Another Christchurch business, FUSH, provided free food to vaccinated people at the Ngā Hau e Whā National Marae clinic in Wainoni last Saturday.

The region appears to be doing well with about 82 per cent of Canterbury residents fully vaccinated, had a single dose or booked in to receive a vaccination.

A Canterbury District Health Board spokesperson said more than 375,000 residents have had at least their first dose and more than 238,000 have had their second dose.

"We want to keep this momentum going," the spokesperson said.
