New York. Coronavirus cases have started increasing once again in the world. Various attractive offers are being given to people to get the vaccine (Covid-19 Vaccine) in many countries to defeat Corona. The pace of vaccination is slow in New York, USA. In such a situation, the mayor here announced a special offer on Wednesday for people to get the vaccine. Here those who take the first dose of corona vaccine will be given 100 dollars (Rs 7 thousand 442). This offer is starting from Friday.
In fact, such an offer has been made to increase the vaccination amid increasing cases of delta variant of Corona in America, so that people, especially the youth, are motivated to get the dose of the vaccine. Meanwhile, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has made wearing masks once again mandatory for people who have taken both doses of the vaccine in high-risk areas from Tuesday.
Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) director Rochelle Valensky told about the decision taken on the mask during the press conference. During this, he told that the vaccine is effective but the risk of further infection has increased due to the delta variant of the corona.
A CDC map shows that community transmission is at an adequate level in all five New York counties. Therefore, the guidelines of Corona are applicable here and the emphasis is on vaccination.
Get your first dose of the #COVID19 vaccine at a City run site and you’ll get $100.
It’s that simple.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Monday that city employees will have to be vaccinated by September 13 or will have to undergo a corona test every week. The test report should be negative.
Data from the Citywide Immunization Registry indicated that 40.8% of New York City residents were not vaccinated. 59.2% of all residents have received at least one dose of the vaccine. The first offer of $ 1000 was proposed for the purpose of motivating people to get the vaccine. However, it was later raised to $100.
“If we don’t achieve herd immunity by any means, our economy will be doomed,” said Robert Lytton, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution who served in President Bill Clinton’s administration.
