Vaccine Incentives by State
More Americans are getting their COVID-19 vaccinations every day, and vaccination rates currently range from 34% in Mississippi to 69% in Vermont. But, with only about half of the entire U.S. population age 12 and older receiving at least one dose of a vaccine as of late May — as well as vaccine demand slowing down in many states — leaders across the country have started to get creative with vaccine incentives. Offerings range from large sums of money via lottery drawings to park passes, gift cards, and more. Here is a state-by-state look at what's on the table in each state so far.
