Some people in the US admitted in a survey that they would suspend their objections to the Covid-19 vaccination if they received a $100 (About R1 400) incentive to take the jab
The randomised survey experiment, which the U.C.L.A. Covid-19 Health and Politics Project conducted, found that a cash reward would make roughly a third of the unvaccinated population more likely to get the jab, according to a Forbes report.
As the amount increased, so too did the number of willing participants who were willing to be inoculated. For $28 (around R400), 28% of survey respondents were more likely to take the vaccine. When $100 was offered, the number of willing people rose to 34%.
