QuoteA university is offering cash prizes of £5,000 to students who can prove they have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19, in an effort to incentivise take-up of the jab.All students at Sussex University are being entered into a draw, with 10 winners receiving £5,000 if they can prove they are double-jabbed or are medically exempt from having the vaccine....The prize draw will take place at the end of November to allow students time to get vaccinated."We're going to automatically enter every student in, and unless they have said they want to opt out, after we've given them the opportunity to have vaccines – this will be about 12 weeks after the announcement – we'll just randomly choose 10 names," Tickell told BBC Radio 4's Today programme."If they can prove they've been double-vaccinated, or indeed if they are medically exempt, we'll make them the award."He added: "We're not bribing them. What we're doing is we're just giving an incentive."...

Quote...The party wasn't just a way to have a good time. The real motivation was to get people in the community vaccinated against Covid-19. Nestled between the food trucks were ones offering Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines.In the minds of the public health and community organizers who staged it, it was a roaring success. Sixty-four people got vaccinated within six hours. Hannah Tello, a community health data manager at the nonprofit Greater Lowell Health Alliance, noted that it was eight to 10 times as many vaccinations as what their mobile clinics had been doing; their most successful day before this administered 12.The people who got shots at the party "were not people who were resistant," Dr. Tello told me. Outreach workers went to a nearby park and invited the homeless people there to get free food and, if they wanted, a vaccination, and many took them up on the offer in such a low-stakes, nonmedical setting...

Quote from: George Oscar Bluth II on August 11, 2021, 03:15:44 PMI think we spend a lot of time worrying about hardcore, redpilled antivaxxers who believe everything they read on Facebook and go to rallies for that crank nurse when a good proportion of the unvaccinated will be people who literally can't afford to have a day off to get vaccinated and can't risk a bad day of side effects afterwards.- Engagement with marginalised communities. They're doing a lot of this, mostly with mosques it seems, but we need to go further. Have a vaccination centre with Polish speaking staff in your local Polski Sklep or whatever. Stop waiting for people to find you, find them.
Quote from: Fambo Number Mive on August 11, 2021, 08:19:13 AMOne idea would be to help people who don't have time to get jabbed, such as people working several jobs, by doing what they did in the USA and having vaccination trucks.
