Missouri Gov. Mike Parson said Wednesday that the state will offer drawings that vaccinated people can enter to win $10,000 in an effort to increase the state's low vaccination rate.

Missouri is having a surge in coronavirus cases health officials say is being powered by the more contagious delta variant combined with a low vaccination rate. About 40% of the state is fully vaccinated.

  1. Until Missouri “officials” and “experts” stop encouraging those under 20 to take the vaccine, they have no moral authority at all. It is reprehensible to even allow vaccination among the healthy in this age group. Much less encourage it. This age group suffers little to no risk from the virus, but suffers the same risk as others from adverse events, which are rapidly piling up. They have nothing to gain from the vaccine except adverse events. If you refute this notion because “they can transmit the virus to others”, I can only answer, what sort of monster is willing to sacrifice their neighbor’s children for their own safety? Apparently there are a great many among those promoting the vaccine be used on them.
