US vaccinations: States offer cash prizes and scholarships

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “US vaccinations: States offer cash prizes and scholarships” – below is their description.

The rate of COVID-19 vaccinations has slowed in the United States.

Half of all adults have received at least one dose, but polls suggest a quarter of the population do not want to get a jab at all.

This has led some states to think of creative schemes to convince people to roll up their sleeves.

Al Jazeera’s Heidi Zhou-Castro reports from Columbus, Ohio.
