Win $Millions for Getting Vaccinated

America always invents, even on how to get people to get vaccines. People are already winning even as they are getting vaccinated.

An Ohio woman became the first person to win the state's $1 million Vax-a-Million incentive prize, and a local teenager became the first to win a college scholarship, also offered by the program. Open to permanent Ohio residents who have gotten either the Johnson & Johnson vaccine or the first part of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, the state saw a 33% jump in people age 16 and over getting vaccinated the week after it announced the incentive, per the Associated Press. The government has given the go-ahead for states to offer incentives such as cash payments and lotteries to residents in exchange for getting vaccinated.
