No Surge In COVID-19 Vaccinations After Colorado Lottery Announced
Right now it seems like if you haven't received the COVID-19 vaccine there are offers everywhere to entice you to get the shot. Currently, you have City Market who is doing a one million dollar giveaway, the state of Colorado doing five- $1 million dollar giveaways, plus lots of smaller businesses offer things such as a free beer if you can show proof of getting the COVID-19 vaccine. You would think with all of these offers the state of Colorado would see a large increase in vaccines being administered but that doesn't seem to be the case.
According to the Canon City Daily Record, there has been no surge in shots being administered since the lottery was announced. Although Governor Jared Polis doesn't seem alarmed by this. Governor Polis said, “We were at a high level of vaccination. We want to sustain that overtime to keep people interested in getting vaccinated.”
