New Hampshire Governor Sununu Says No Need to Offer Incentives to Get Vaccinated
New Hampshire’s Vaccination Numbers Look Great
What? No free beer? Come on man, no free Donuts?
The main reason Gov. Chris Sununu is not on board with offering incentives to vaccinations is that New Hampshire has been a leader in winning the race to get its residents vaccinated, according to WMUR.com. A majority of New Hampshire residents have received the vaccine, and nearly every care home in the state has full vaccination status, the news station reports.
Why offer incentives if the program is working?
Biden’s Month of Action to Get the Nation Vaccinated
While President Biden is doing a full-court press to get the nation to a vaccination rate of 70% by July 4, Sununu feels that other states may need those incentives such as a million-dollar lottery, offers of college tuition, free beer, but we don’t need it, WMUR stated.
Maybe he is insinuating that we are just smarter than the rest of America? I don’t want to put words in his mouth, but we do have a super high vaccination rate and we have been leading the nation in this for some time now.
We're the 603!
Case Counts are Falling
Case counts in New Hampshire for COVID-19 are falling. That doesn’t mean we are out of the woods yet.
The state appears prepared if there is an uptick in cases in the fall and the state is making every effort to get even the homebound vaccinated.
According to reporting by WMUR.com, the state has made 4000 house calls to those that are homebound, and that there are only approximately “137” households left on that list.
I would say that is phenomenal. Fingers crossed that we keep this pandemic behind us in 2022.
