(AP) — Free beer is the latest White House-backed incentive to persuade Americans to get vaccinated for COVID-19.

President Joe Biden announced a “month of action” on Wednesday to get more shots into arms before the July 4 holiday. That could lead, he said, to “a summer of freedom, a summer of joy … an All-American summer.”

Biden updated the nation on his plans to get 70% of adults at least partially vaccinated by Independence Day. The latest vaccine sweetener, provided by Anheuser-Busch, builds on other incentives like cash giveaways, sports tickets and paid leave, to keep up the pace of Americans getting shots.
