New Jersey Gov. The plan is part of Murphy's multipronged approach to increasing the state's vaccination s and reach its goal of 4. The program is one of many initiatives taken by city and state governments to get more people vaccinated, and according to a public health expert, they are effective. Perry N. This is one way to do it. As of Monday, more than 7.
Like most parts of the country, the of new daily vaccinations has steadily declined over the last few weeks. As part of the "Shot and a Beer" program, the vaccinated resident can show their vaccination card to 13 participating bars and breweries in the state, and they will be rewarded with one free beer. Residents who received their first shot before May are not eligible, according to a spokesman for Murphy's office. Halkitis said the fact that the governor's office is focused on those who haven't received their shots is critical.
Bryan added that more locations may be added to the list of available bars in the coming weeks and that the program was done with the approval of the state Health Department. The U. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has not given specific guidance on alcohol use immediately following a vaccine shot. The state is also taking other measures to increase vaccination s, including door-to-door campaigns, phone calls to people who pre-registered for their shot but haven't gone to their appointments and outreach with community partners.
New Jersey's beer promotion comes less than a week after Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont announced a similar promotion for his state. However, the Connecticut promotion doesn't limit the free beers to residents who received shots in May. Last week, West Virginia Gov. Halkitis said incentives are common in science, particularly among clinical trials and studies, and they do appeal to hesitant people. While New Jersey's beer program won't likely end vaccine hesitancy, he said, it will help bring the state closer to a fully vaccinated population and cut down on COVID cases.
