Bill Blasio wants the toddlers to get the jab
In May 2021 the Mayor of New York City offered “free french fries” to those who took the vaccine. https://justidag.info/carrot-or-stick
Some Governors were more generous “…DeWine said a separate incentive would be made available to Ohio children who are vaccinated. Starting on May 18, vaccinated 12- to 17-year-olds will be able to put their names down via an electronic portal for a chance to win four-year scholarships that will cover tuition, room and board, and books at any of Ohio’s public universities, DeWine said. The state will give out five scholarships in all. The first will be awarded on May 26.” https://justidag.info/en/covid-updates/are-you-getting-vaccinated/
Now, half a year later, when people still seem reluctant, Blasio makes a new attempt: “Good news, kids are eligible for the $100 vaccine incentive. So, we really want kids to take advantage, families take advantage of that. Everyone could use a little more money around the holidays. But, most importantly, we want our kids and our families to be safe.” https://www1.nyc.gov/office-of-the-mayor/news/742-21/transcript-mayor-de-blasio-holds-media-availability
Of the large number of people that are still unvaccinated the majority probably thinks that it is not worth 100 dollars to take an unproven, potentially dangerous vaccine that is now also proven not to prevent infection. But what about the children? Shall I send my toddler to the doctor just to cash in 100 dollars?
