Day 424 of self-isolation - Vaccinations


In the UK, there have been 80 vaccinations per 100 people; of course some of us have had two vaccinations. And the call has gone out  for 38 to 39 year olds. Daughter.1 has had her first jab, and daughter.2 will soon be getting hers. There's still a long way to go - we need to do 18 to 37 year olds (and maybe younger), but the NHS is doing a grand job.

In the USA, the number is about the same at 79 vaccinations per 100, but now they are running into "vaccine hesitancy". There's no age restrictions on who can get the vaccine now. And so bribes are being offered to persuade people to get jabbed.

I'm in two minds about this. Is this an effective use of public money? Why should we pay people to do something that is to their own benefit?
