The Biden administration is offering $100 to Americans who get vaccinated, as the CDC vaccine rollout hits a brick wall.
The $100 payments can be paid for with the $350 billion in aid granted to state, local, territorial and tribal governments under the American Rescue Plan Act.
“Throughout America’s vaccination efforts, we have seen that financial incentives serve as a motivating factor for some people to get vaccinated,” the White House said on Thursday.

The Biden administration also confirmed Pres. Joe Biden will require all federal government employees and onsite contractors to provide proof of vaccination or take weekly PCR tests.
“After months and months of cases going down, we’re seeing a spike in COVID cases. Why? Because of this new form, this new variant called the delta variant,” Biden said on Thursday.
The United States Postal Service has declined to comply with Biden’s vaccine mandate.
The American Postal Workers Union that represents over 200,000 U.S. Postal Service employees, released a statement Wednesday declaring it’s not the federal government’s job to force vaccines on Americans.
