Biden Just Told All US States To Offer A $100 Vaccine Incentive To Anybody Not Vaxxed Yet

Biden Tells US States To Offer $100 Vaccine Incentive To Unvaxxed Americans

U.S. President Joe Biden has suggested a brand new cash incentive to get more Americans fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Speaking on Thursday, July 29, he urged "all states" across the country to offer $100 to those who remain unvaccinated, as an incentive to get their first dose.

"Today, I'm calling on all states and local governments to use funding they have received [...] to give $100 to anyone who gets fully vaccinated," he said.

Biden used New Mexico, Ohio and Colorado as examples of success — states which he says had an uptick of vaccination rates after offering financial incentives to residents.

The president acknowledged that the monetary reward "might sound unfair" to those who have already been vaccinated against COVID-19, but said, "we all benefit if we can get more people vaccinated."

On the same day, Biden also announced that the feds would fully reimburse small and medium-sized businesses that provide workers paid time off to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

He explained that the Delta variant of COVID-19 continues to spread in the U.S., made worse by a "pandemic of the unvaccinated."

"People are dying and will die who don't have to die," he said.

However, because enhanced vaccine certificates with QR codes won't come into effect in the province until October 22, a team of volunteer software engineers and medical professionals created a tool that lets you store your proof of vaccination on your phone with a QR code.

"No personal data is sent to the internet. [The] QR code is for verification only, with no personal info," the team behind the tool told CTV News.
