Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Saturday that the city would give away AirPods, gift cards and thousands of dollars in scholarship money as incentives to get more children vaccinated.
In her tweet, she also mentions three vaccination centres (Brookland MS, Sousa MS, Johnson MS) where this incentive is available. Further, she also announces that the teenagers will stand a chance to win a $25,000 scholarship or an iPad and headphones. Only teenagers between the ages of 12-17 are eligible.
A $51 gift card is a nod to the push to make D.C. the 51st U.S. state. Adolescents also have a chance at winning $25,000 in scholarship money or an iPad and headphones, the mayor said.
