In a push to get at least 70% of all adults in the US vaccinated by July Fourth, President Joe Biden on Wednesday announced a National Month of Action. As part of the push, the White House has rounded up many of the incentives for people to receive the COVID-19 vaccine

Some of those incentives include free beer from Anheuser-Busch on July Fourth; winning cruises, Super Bowl tickets and cash from CVS; $2 million in gift cards from Door Dash; on-site vaccines and free tickets for MLB games; thousands of Xboxes from Microsoft; $1 million per week to someone through Kroger; and winning a year of free flights from United Airlines.

Other incentives and pushes to get people the vaccine include:

  • Free child care while you're getting vaccinates from KinderCare, Learning Care Group, YMCAs and Bright Horizons
  • Vaccine events at Black-owned barbershops and beauty salons
  • A Mayors Challenge competition to see which city can grow its vaccination rate the most by July Fourth
  • Getting colleges and universities to pledge commitment to getting students vaccinated
  • Extended hours at pharmacies during June

Vice President Kamala Harris will also embark on a national tour encouraging people to get vaccinated. The tour will be "anchored in the south."

Around 41.5% of the entire US population is currently fully vaccinated against COVID-19, according to numbers from John Hopkins University. This means 136 million people have received either both doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson shot.
