In an attempt to encourage youngsters to get vaccinated against Covid-19, Washington DC's Mayor Muriel Bowser announced that the city would give away free AirPods, gift cards, or a $25,000 scholarship for those who receive their first shot of the vaccine.

In a tweet on his social media handle, Mayor Muriel Bowser wrote, "Starting today at 10 am, DC youth (12-17) who get vaccinated at Brookland MS, Sousa MS and Johnson Ms will receive AirPods with their first shot and chance to win a $25000 scholarship and iPad, headphones." A student would only be eligible for the rewards if it is their first Covid-19 vaccine dose. The student's parent or legal guardian along must accompany them to the vaccination centre. And in order to claim the prize, the students must carry their school ID, DC one cards, kids ride free card, report card or proof of enrollment.

One of the parents/the guardian will also receive one gift card per child getting their first shot of vaccine. Washington DC is not the first district to come up with this idea as the US states of Maryland, Michigan, and Ohio are also rewarding people with freebies for taking their first dose of Covid-19 vaccine.
