A $1 Million Lottery Didn't Improve COVID-19 Vaccination

Stephen Zenner/SOPA Images/LightRocket via Getty Images A study recently published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that vaccine lotteries didn’t appear to make a significant impact. They then compared Ohio’s vaccination rates with U.S. vaccination rates and controlled for potential contributing factors, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) emergency use authorization of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for adolescents. I was hopeful to observe a strategy that clearly increased vaccination rates,” Walkey told Healthline. There are likely many reasons that the vaccine lotteries may have failed to drive a significant increase in vaccination rates. “It is important that we rigorously evaluate strategies to improve vaccination rates, so we can learn, improve, and maximize use of our resources,” Walkey said.
