West Virginians between the ages of 16 and 35 who get the Covid-19 vaccine will receive a $100 savings bond. People who are in the incentive age range who have already been vaccinated will also receive a $100 savings bond.
Specific issues addressed and anticipated impact
The goal is to get more than 70 percent of West Virginia's eligible population vaccinated, which would be doable if 80 percent of the population between the ages of 16 and 35 got the shots. The younger population is not taking up the vaccination as much as needed as yet.
