Gov. Steve Sisolak of Nevada said that the new “Vax Nevada Days” initiative provided skeptics one more reason to get vaccinated.

The state will be giving out a total of 5 million in cash prizes to those who will receive the vaccine. More than half its residents 12 years and older have received at least one dose of vaccine. More than 42.7%, that is 1.1 million, have completed their vaccination.
