Amid the surge in the number of COVID-19 cases, New York, USA, has put up cash to promote booster shots, or third doses of the vaccine.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio held a press conference on the 21st local time, Reuters reported, promising to pay $100 in cash to citizens who get booster shots by the end of the year.
Local governments in the United States, such as New York, have previously provided cash, etc. to facilitate vaccination against COVID-19.
New York State has even given vaccinated residents a lottery prize of up to $5 million.
At this press conference, Mayor de Blasio emphasized, “We cannot repeat such a situation again,” after mentioning various business bans in New York City last year.
New York City is currently reviewing whether to revise the massive New Year’s ceremonies scheduled to take place at Times Square in Manhattan, and New York Mayor Eric Adams, who will take office in January next year, has also postponed an indoor inauguration.
