A number of states are turning to lotteries to get those who are leery of coronavirus vaccines to get the shots. Texas A&M Public Health Professor Tim Callaghan says we need to try everything, because the numbers of vaccinations have fallen despite the growing availability of vaccines.

A bill filed in Congress this week would create a national vaccine lottery. Checks for a million-dollars would go to 100 randomly selected winners. Callaghan says incentives have been proved effective in convincing people to change their health behaviors.
