They need to pay us to get the corona virus vaccine like they do the flu shot!

    Without a reward? Let's see the rewards I'm enjoying.
    1. Not catching something that has killed and has damaged the health of people who've caught it and survived it.
    2. Not bringing something home that can kill my wife who has a lot of the conditions that can cause COVID to be much MUCH worse for her.
    3. Being able to see my family (and more to the point, the brand-new grandchildren who are arriving in a matter of weeks) without worrying that I'll be a plague-spreading butthead
    4. Being able to go to work and keep earning a living
    5. Being able to go to the store without worrying
    6. Seeing the state start opening up and allowing businesses to have more than three people in a store (kinda important since we are board game demonstrators and we haven't been able to do that since the four of us sorta kills stores from having anyone else in the store)
    7. Conventions that I've missed for a year and a half finally starting up again.
    8. Being able to take my family on a MUCH NEEDED vacation.

    All things come at a risk. The risk of dying from the virus is higher than the risk of dying from the vaccine.

    That's an oddity. I've never encountered any company or store that provides such incentive. Best we get for the flu shot is an offer of free. However, MD has entered everyone who gets the shot into a lottery drawing, so that's a nice potential bonus for something I was going to do already.

    Sad to see entitled Americans demanding to be paid to take vaccine while thousands of people in poorer countries desperately want to be vaccinated and have no access.

    I have never been paid to get the flu shot, so not sure he is referring to Americans, that is why I asked where they do this

    I get the flu shot every year and I pay for it
