The government of West Virginia in USA has decided to give young people a $100 bond to encourage them to get vaccinated against coronavirus. West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice (R) after weeks of brainstorming got an idea to motivate young people to get vaccinated against coronavirus.

In an interview, he said that “It would be such a drop in the bucket compared to the ungodly amount of money we’re spending right now,” Justice said in a phone interview.

He added that the government will bear the costs of $27.5 million to pay each person $100 between the ages of 16 to 35- the group most resistant to coronavirus vaccination.

Justice said that West Virginia had spent $75 million to test people over and over for coronavirus. $100 is just one of the many incentives given to people by the government, schools, hospitals, and businesses to get young people vaccinated against coronavirus.

On Monday, Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont announced that people can get a free drink at certain restaurants if they show their card of vaccination.
