THE DAILY REFORMER (NEW YORK, UNITED STATES)
Robert Litan, a economist who served in Bill Clinton’s administration is proposing the U.S. government spend $275 billion dollars to pay Americans one thousand dollars each to take the coronavirus vaccine.
The incentive would be an effort to hasten herd immunity.
Per Yahoo “Paying people $1,000 to take the coronavirus vaccine is the price of returning to a “normal” post-pandemic life, Litan told Yahoo Finance.”
The report adds “the proposal underscores the risks in having a public skeptical of taking a new vaccine. According to a Yahoo Finance-Harris Poll conducted in October, nearly two-thirds of Americans have concerns about the fast-tracked COVID-19 vaccine, the product of Operation Warp Speed. Similarly, a Pew Research Center survey found that about half of U.S. adults (51%) said “they would definitely or probably get a vaccine to prevent COVID-19 if it were available today; nearly as many (49%) say they definitely or probably would not get vaccinated at this time.”
