New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy Considering To Give Cash Incentives For Taking Vaccine

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy is open to all suggestions to increase the vaccine demand in the state. A large population has taken at least one shot of the vaccine. However, there is still an equally large chunk of people who are yet to take the vaccine shot. Murphy wants these people to get vaccinated and is thinking of coming up with incentives. He is even considering the aspect of giving cash to people for taking the vaccine. Murphy said, “All things are on the table.” As more and more people are taking the vaccine, the demand is also going down all across the US.

Phil Murphy has come up with an innovative program to encourage people to take the vaccine. The plan is called ‘Shot and Beer’ wherein every person who takes his/her first dose in May gets a free beer.

Moreover, Murphy said, “Any New Jerseyan who gets their first vaccine dose in the month of May and takes their vaccination card to a participating brewery will receive a free beer.”
