America’s largest beer company will buy the country a round if it hits July 4th vaccination goal

In another incentivisation program to boost COVID vaccinations, Anheuser-Busch says they will buy the entire country a round of beers if it hits Joe Biden’s vaccination goal by the Fourth of July.

We’re now less than a month out from the United States’ Independence Day, which is the day the Biden Administration set to meet a goal of at least 70 percent of adults receiving at least one coronavirus vaccine shot. To incentivize the completion of this goal and to help facilitate more adults receiving the vaccine, Anheuser-Busch announced what is supposedly their largest giveaway in company history, and comes at a “pivotal moment where people are excited to be together again,” the company’s chief marketing officer, Marcel Marcondes, said in a statement.

Although many Americans have already been fully vaccinated, the number of vaccinations occurring daily is dropping. Paulina Firozi over at the Washington Post writes, “The continued efforts to get more shots in arms has taken on increased urgency as the vaccination pace wanes across the country and as state and local leaders ease pandemic-era restrictions.” This begs the question as to whether people were getting vaccinated out of necessity, or only to be able to participate in ‘normal’ life again.
