From marijuana (pot for shots), to $5 coupons from Target - we have been offered a lot of freebies to persuade us to get vaccinated. Just today another incentive was offered to all Americans from the White House and Anheuser-Busch, 'Get a shot, and have a beer'.

According to CNN, if by July 4th, 70% of adults have at least one COVID-19 shot, free beer will be provided. That is one free beer per person in the form of a $5 virtual credit card. You didn't think Anheuser-Busch was actually going to hand deliver or mail you a beer did you?

I am not one to look a gift horse in the mouth - but really does one free beer, or a Kroger gift card really seal the deal for someone who has been on the fence about getting vaccinated? I think not.

Full disclosure I am vaccinated, I wanted to get vaccinated. That being said - I am not taking my 'I got vaccinated' card all over town trying to score free stuff. Not getting the coronavirus is all the prize I need.

If your mind is made up that you will not get vaccinated, I don't think a freebie is going to change it. If you are on the fence, maybe a gift card will be your deciding factor (but I highly doubt it).

My final thought is this - people are going to get the shot because they want to, not for a free hamburger or one beer. On the other hand, if the state of Michigan offered a fat cash payout like Ohio is doing with their 'Vax-a-Million' lottery, that may change some minds, what do you think?

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
