Biden Tells Cities to Pay $100 to People Who Get Fully Vaccinated

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden Tells Cities to Pay $100 to People Who Get Fully Vaccinated” – below is their description.

President Joe Biden’s administration is calling on states and local governments to provide $100 to people who get vaccinated using the $350 billion of aid that his administration has provided them.

The Treasury Department released a statement on Thursday saying that the president was calling on states, municipalities and territorial governments to provide the vaccine incentive using funds from the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan. The administration wants municipalities to give $100 to newly vaccinated people to encourage more citizens to get the jab.

“For these governments and the communities they represent, no task is more urgent than turning the tide on the pandemic, and there is no better tool than vaccination,” according to the department’s statement. “This is why Treasury is encouraging state, territorial, and local governments to use the funds to enhance their vaccination efforts, including by providing individual vaccine incentives.”

Some states and cities have already announced vaccine incentives using the American Rescue Plan aid or through funds from the Cares Act. This money is meant to help governments fight Covid-19 and address the negative economic consequences of the pandemic.
