Ray McGuire says New Yorkers should get $100 spending voucher to get COVID-19 vaccine

More than 6.5 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine are in arms across New York City, but mayoral candidate Ray McGuire has a green idea to get more residents inoculated.

The former Citicorp executive released a vaccine plan Thursday which includes offering up to 1 million New Yorkers a $100 voucher to get the shot. The voucher could then be used in the five boroughs to buy goods from local small businesses, or enjoy a meal at a fine local restaurant.
