Ohio Vax Rate Surges 28% After $1M Lottery Offer

I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised by this:

Coronavirus vaccinations in Ohio jumped 28 percent in the days following the governor’s announcement of a lottery for residents who get the shots, state health officials said Thursday. After Gov. Mike DeWine (R) announced the lottery on May 12, and vaccination rates increased 28 percent in the period of May 14-17, the state Department of Health said. Residents who have been vaccinated will be eligible for five drawings of $1 million each.
