Cuomo Announces Bribery Meant to Bump Up Vaccination Numbers

America is on the precipice of a grand recovery, the likes of which we haven’t experienced in over a century, but some authorities are concerned that a slowing of our vaccination rates could set the whole house of cards aflame.

Vaccine hesitancy has long been an issue in this effort, with US citizens having long been distrustful of both the government and the pharmaceutical industry, (often for good reason).  This, combined with the recent news of a number of adverse side effects, has driven participation in the vaccination drive down drastically, forcing a number of local leaders to take drastic action. 

On Wednesday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said the Mets and Yankees Major League Baseball teams would give free tickets to fans who got vaccinated at the ball parks before games.

And he’s not the only one.

New Jersey and Connecticut are partnering with bars and brew pubs to offer a free drink to people who are newly vaccinated, while Maryland announced it would give $100 to state employees who get inoculated.

In Colorado, a non-profit organization is planning to reach out to rural conservatives – a group that includes many vaccine skeptics – at county fairs and rodeos.

Immunize Colorado also will use pop-up and Zoom events to appeal directly to immigrant groups and communities of color, where issues of access and distrust of the medical establishment have prevented many people from rolling up their sleeves.

The worry is that vaccine hesitancy could lead to a delay in reaching “herd immunity” in the United States, which is necessary in order to prevent further mutations of the COVID-19 virus.
