Cash incentives for vaccinations are a good idea
California is targeting reopening on June 15 as we move towards collective immunity to COVID-19. Unfortunately, some people are still hesitant to get vaccinated. I understand, I was reluctant myself. It is normal human behavior to be wary of new things. However, there comes a time to listen to the science and take action.
Now there are incentives to get vaccinated. Gov. Gavin Newsom has announced that he is offering $ 50 gift cards to all remaining unvaccinated people to get vaccinated. In addition, there are cash lottery prizes of up to $ 1.5 million. All residents who have received the vaccine are eligible for the lottery.
