The vaccine lottery truly is like something out of a Philip K. Dick dystopian farce.
So much of what is happening right now is so bizarre, that it is virtually impossible for the average person to even process. That is the reason that so many people shut down and just go along with whatever.
Maryland officials have hailed the state’s $2 million VaxCash lottery as an “unqualified success,” a promotion that helped the state reach its goal of inoculating 70 percent of its adult population with at least one shot of a coronavirus vaccine by Memorial Day.
It worked so well at boosting vaccinations that they decided to start another one – VaxU Scholarship, which offers 20 vaccinated 12- to 17-year-olds a chance at winning a $50,000 in-state public college scholarship. It runs until Labor Day.
“There are some people who just either haven’t gotten around to it or they are like, ‘I may get it but I just didn’t feel the need,’ ” Gov. Larry Hogan, a Republican, said in early July at the launch of the VaxU Scholarship. “There are others who are just opposed to it and are hard to convince. But I think there are more of the folks that just need a little extra incentive to go out and do it, and I’m hoping that this opportunity at a college scholarship and us getting out talking about the importance of it will help encourage some more younger people to do so.”
Although state officials say the incentives have helped Maryland become one of the most vaccinated states in the country, it remains unclear how significant a role the lottery played in motivating people to get vaccinated or whether the state could have reached its goal without it.
Yes, I’m sure that a lot of people decided to take this deadly vaccine when they found out they could win cash prizes.
For me though, the decision came when the White House brought in a teenage Filipina sex kitten to tell me that she thought it was a good idea for me to take this deadly vaxx.
My personal policy when deciding whether or not to undergo experimental gene therapy treatment to fight back against a disease that doesn’t exist is always to listen to what dumb sluts tell me to do.
I would have preferred if Joe Biden had sent that girl to my house to beat me with a carrot stick and call me her “little vaxx slave.” But I guess you can’t get everything you want.
