The federal government is so eager to get people to line up for its Covid-19 mRNA vaccinations that it is considering paying $1,500 per man, woman and child to get the vaccine.
The government is aware that Black people in particular are uneasy about taking vaccine shots.
So the feds are linking the vaccinations to $1,500 stimulus checks in hopes that people will stop resisting and get in line for the money.
While vaccine manufacturers claim their vaccines are highly efficacious, they acknowledge that most people are wary of an mRNA vaccine being developed in under a year. Most vaccines take 3-5 years to develop safely after undergoing rigorous clinical testing.
The FDA has never approved an mRNA vaccine for human use in history. That's another reason why Americans are shying away from taking the vaccine.
The federal government rarely pays Americans to take vaccinations.
"Trying to pay people to take the vaccine suggests there's something wrong with the vaccine," Arthur Caplan, a bioethics professor at the New York University Grossman School of Medicine, told Healthline. "It's not going to address their suspicions and doubts. It's going to inflame them."
Question: Will you take the vaccine for $1,500?
