Are Covid-19 Vaccine Incentives Paying Off? | WSJ

by News Update

Across the country, states are shelling out incentives ranging from free beer to $1 million lotteries to encourage residents to get their Covid-19 shots. But is the effort to boost vaccination rates working? And is it worth the cost? Photo composite: Adam Falk/The Wall Street Journal

They offer donuts what if cops go around giving vaccines to ppl cops be like take this shot for my extra donut

Million dollars yea right it took them a year to make this vaccine. It should take 5-15 years to create a HEALTHY vaccine

Please CAREFULLY consider if you want this vaccine. It may be leaky and will likely result in variants, it concentrates into specific organs based on the drug companies own data, the long term negative impacts aren't known but could potentially be very serious and result in long term chronic conditions. If you do get it, it's imperative you dose up on Liposomal-C, Vitamin D3, C60, but more importantly Dihydroquercetin (Taxifolin) in combination with Vitamin-C.

That’s how shallow they think some people are that they need to give them free donuts, free food, etc to bribe them into taking the vaccine. Not many people are on the left side of the spectrum who are too lazy to think.

Money for cytotoxicity, nope.

I wonder how many dummies fell for the schmuck offering fries and burgers?

6 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

I’m still waiting for the Data and chemical ingredients in the vaccine.

DrupBup June 17, 2021 - 12:56 PM

"Are incentives paying off?" More like: why does it matter?

Mike B June 17, 2021 - 1:07 PM

So creepy it’s like trying to get a kid in your car with ice cream. Perhaps people are looking at all the deaths and harm on VAERS

Gabe Darrett June 17, 2021 - 1:18 PM

Why is everyone complaining about the incentives?! Would you rather be forced to take the vaccine?

Brothers and Sisters, there are so many people leaving in fear, committing suicide and afraid of losing their jobs because of covid19 mask and vaccine requirements.
"Modern Day Slavery" is now what this covid19 is about and WE THE PEOPLE must say, "Enough is Enough"…for the sake of the brighter future of our children.💞

Maddix Roberts June 17, 2021 - 1:33 PM

Hunger games? If this virus was so bad people wouldn't have to be persuaded to get the vaccine. This is straight AIDS.

robert smith June 17, 2021 - 1:34 PM

why is there an "incentive" to take the wuhan jab?

Satguy 141 June 17, 2021 - 1:34 PM

A question I would like to have answered. Why is china using 2 of its own vaccines for covid, and not what the rest of the world is using?

CNC 81 June 17, 2021 - 1:38 PM

This is right up Democrats and politicians alley, paying people off to tow the Democrat line also do and say what they want them to. Hillary must be mad that it’s working so well for them.

Maddix Roberts June 17, 2021 - 1:38 PM

Since when has the government ever cared about your health. If they did then we wouldn't have so many fat people.

That's your governor California? Really?

Pangram June 17, 2021 - 3:42 PM

ofcourse they will pay off… for the vaccine manufacturers!!!

Joe Blow June 17, 2021 - 3:47 PM

As a member of the Army National Guard, I like how they ordered us to stay home and quarantine for an entire year under Trump and we couldn't conduct training because we had to stop the spread of COVID, but as soon as Biden got inaugurated, it was right back to business as usual and training immediately resumed.  PURE LIES AND CORRUPTION.

A violation of bioethics, full stop.

Why not a chance to be a contestant on The Price Is Right?

Brice Barker June 17, 2021 - 4:27 PM

So we are bribing people?

Those Nerdy Metal Guys June 17, 2021 - 4:37 PM

Why exactly is this untested gene therapy needed? Why is the government pushing a pharmaceutical product that has not been proven to reduce disease transmission?

The entangled wiggler-man June 17, 2021 - 4:50 PM

As proven by this comment section, these incentives only reinforce people's fears about potential side effects. Additionally, I think a lottery is very tone deaf when so many small businesses have been absolutely devastated by the lockdown.

Your soul hangs upon the line, existence dares to decline.

It's sad to see people put poison in their body because people on tv told them too lol. You poor poor sheep are going to be so easy to be led to slaughter. Sad thing is you think you were virtuous by wearing a mask, ruining your kids lives by falling in line and then willfully poisoning your families.

Winston Smith June 17, 2021 - 5:36 PM

It's so good they'll pay you to take it said no one ever

tlak June 17, 2021 - 5:41 PM

So all these anti vaxxers with their rights violations, side effects, magnetism and chips, all run and get it when they're offered a trinket.

Gene Delong June 17, 2021 - 5:43 PM

of course they want to pay you to take the death shot. if paying you doesn't work they will force you to by taking your job or not hiring you or something else. the majority of the population goes along with whatever the government controlled media tells them to di like good little sheep, but there is a growing number of patroits that know what the governments have planned. they want to kill us all.
