The City will announce the winners online on August 19. "Some people have been waiting to get vaccinated; as we’ve seen in Nevada and other states, prizes have motivated some people to get vaccinated more than the health benefits," said Michael Mays, Acting City Manager. "We’ve seen quite an uptick in cases during this recent surge. 8,000 people in Boulder City have been vaccinated so far. We are trying to reach herd immunity - typically 70-percent."
The same paramedics who ran the City vaccination clinics will be administering the vaccine. They have been trained and were highly successful in earlier clinics. "We’re asking residents who have not yet been vaccinated to consider the science behind the vaccine," said Fire Chief Will Gray. "One video that breaks it down is here: https://youtu.be/35Idb_lCU4o - we’ve heard from several people who, after viewing it, decided to get vaccinated, protecting themselves and their loved ones."
The City is utilizing American Rescue Plan funds received from the federal government to pay out these prizes. It is an appropriate and approved expenditure for promoting vaccinations, according to federal officials.
