Nevada to Disburse $5 Million in Vaccine Effort

LAS VEGAS — Nevada is distributing $5 million in cash prizes to residents who have been vaccinated as part of an effort to encourage more people to get shots.

Gov. Steve Sisolak said Thursday that the new “Vax Nevada Days” initiative provided skeptics one more reason to get vaccinated.

His announcement adds Nevada to a growing list of states offering incentives to revive flatlining vaccination efforts and maintain demand.

More than half the state’s residents 12 and older have received at least one dose of vaccine and 42.7% — or more than 1.1 million — statewide have completed their inoculations.
