Doctor resorts to expensive bribe to vaccinate millennials.
The Covid-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on the global economy, and the motor industry has not been left unscathed, with production lines halted, and large auto shows canceled. But one manufacturer is fighting the good fight: Tesla. The California-based EV company continues to defy all expectations with strong sales and record deliveries and has even entered the fight to help stop the virus. Dr. Raul Vazquez from Buffalo, New York has followed Tesla's lead, quite literally, and is offering a Tesla Model 3 to anyone who gets vaccinated at one of his pop-up clinics in and around the city of Buffalo.
Dr. Vazquez has been organizing pop-up clinics across the city focusing on getting younger people to get the job, and the doctor's train of thought is that a brand new Tesla should incentivize people enough to visit one of the clinics. In order to enter the raffle, you must have both shots. Then you'll get a ticket. You come in with a parent, you get the shot, you get a ticket, bring a kid, they get a ticket and the odds go up.
"We have to try whatever we can because hesitancy is really bad," said Vazquez. The doctor is concerned about low turnouts and skepticism around the vaccine in general.
Dr. Vazquez says that people between the ages of 20 to 40 are at high risk. Dr. Kuo, a colleague, believes that the vaccine is safe: "The vaccine works. We are seeing really good results. We are in the middle of a spike of Covid in Buffalo, but numbers are coming down because we're vaccinating more people every day."
The car up for grabs is a 2021 Tesla Model 3. The Model 3 starts at $38,990 and offers a minimum range of 250 miles. Winning a Tesla by getting potentially life-saving medication sounds like a win-win to us.
