hmm, I wonder if I could get a third 'just to be sure' booster dose and snag $100 at the same time...

NYC to Offer $100 Incentive for Vaccination Starting Friday
[www.nbcnewyork.com]

Starting this Friday, New York City will pay $100 to anyone who goes to a city-run vaccination site for their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

The announcement comes just days after the mayor said all city workers would have to be vaccinated or go through strict weekly testing protocols.

It also comes amid a surge in cases in the city, driven by the explosion of the delta variant. Last Friday, the rolling average of new daily cases was 32% higher than a week prior.

According to New York State Department of Health data, between 45% and 65% of New York City residents are fully vaccinated, depending on the borough.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday that cities in high-transmission areas -- which includes New York City -- should "seriously consider" adopting the CDC's new guidelines on indoor masking for vaccinated people. But Cuomo stopped short of fully mandating it.

City of Los Angeles just issued a citywide cell phone alert about the COVID surge here. It came in like an Amber Alert, first one like it I've seen.

Cash incentives for immunization is really a cheap way to reduce healthcare costs. Good idea, New York City.


I'd add a mild proposal... hand out cash to people wearing masks to incentivise that too ?

Generally you can’t toss a vaccine out of your body is soon as you’re paid.

If it's Pfizer or Moderna, I hope they don't get paid until the second dose is in their arm.

This.

This, too.


I'm annoyed that an entity would have to resort to paying its residents to get vaccinated for all the various reasons, but then:

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
