the Hill:

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice (R) announced on Monday that any West Virginian aged 16 to 35 who gets vaccinated will receive a $100 savings bond, in an effort to get more young residents inoculated.

The state, according to Justice, will use the money it received from the CARES Act, the COVID-19 relief package passed by Congress last March, to pay for the savings bonds.

Young West Virginia residents, according to Justice, are not being vaccinated “as fast as we’d like them to take them,” which is why he is spearheading the savings bond plan.

“If we really want to move the needle, we’ve got to get our younger people vaccinated,” he continued at a press briefing.

According to Justice, West Virginia has 380,000 residents ages 16 to 35.

The governor said his team has “vetted this in every way that we possibly can to be assured that we can use our CARES dollars to do exactly just this.”

The plan, Justice noted, will be retroactive, so West Virginia residents ages 16 to 35 who have already received their vaccine will be eligible for a $100 savings bond.

It ain't socialism when a Republican does it.
