Entities across the U.S. are pulling out all the stops to urge people to get the COVID-19 vaccine, from entries into multi-million-dollar lotteries, to free college tuition, to giveaways galore. On this episode of the Business Group on Health Podcast, we speak with behavioral economist, Dr. Kevin Volpp, on key design choices and tradeoffs among the various financial and non-financial incentive strategies underway, including the “Philly Vax Sweepstakes", an initiative in which he and his colleagues are key collaborators.
