NY Dem Gov. Trying To Lure Kids Into Getting Vaccinated By Offering Chance At Full College Scholarship
Kahty Hochul, the Democratic Mayor of New York, is so desperate to try and convince children between the ages of 5-11 vaccinated that she’s offering a chance at a four-year, full-ride scholarship to either two-year or four-year New York State public colleges or universities to any child that has at least taken the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine.
A statement put out by Hochul’s office said, “The ‘Vaccinate, Educate, Graduate’ Vaccine Incentive Scholarship is a five-week public outreach campaign, running through December 19, 2021, and consisting of a series of statewide drawings to increase awareness of the availability and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines and provide incentives to New Yorkers 5-11 years of age to get a COVID-19 vaccine.”
“Parents or legal guardians of any New Yorker who is 5 to 11 years of age and who has received at least their first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, may enter their child for a chance to win one of 50, four-year, full-ride scholarships (including tuition, fees, room-and-board, and expenses) to any two-year or four-year New York State public college or university,” the statement continued.
The website then added, “Enter your vaccinated 5-11-year-old for a chance to win a full scholarship to any New York public college or university. Entries must be received by December 19, 2021, 2021 at 11:59:59 p.m. EDT to be eligible for at least one drawing. … Ten winners will be announced weekly beginning Wednesday, November 24, 2021 for five consecutive weeks. A total of 50 prize winners will be selected.”
The scholarship will include the full cost of in-state tuition at a New York State or City University; room and board and allowances for books, supplies and transportation up to the average cost at SUNY colleges, and for students living on campus, a higher room and board allowance than commuter students. If housing is not available for students on campus, they will receive the same allowance as students living on campus.
“Finally, the COVID-19 vaccine is here for young New Yorkers age 5 through 11.” Hochul went on to state. “Our critical work to make the vaccine accessible and available to all eligible children and their families is underway — and we will creatively support and celebrate those who get vaccinated. The ‘Vaccinate, Educate, Graduate’ program is an extraordinary opportunity for children to win free tuition to a SUNY or CUNY college or university, and I urge parents and guardians to help their children get vaccinated and enter into this once-in-a-lifetime program.”
Felix V. Matos Rodriguez, who serves right now as CUNY Chancellor, then commented, “Expanding vaccine eligibility to children as young as 5 years old gives us even greater confidence that we will effectively subdue COVID-19 and put the conditions in place for New York’s full economic recovery. The ‘Vaccinate, Educate, Graduate’ program will further incentivize parents and guardians to get their children protected, and we strongly encourage them to do so. We thank Governor Hochul for encouraging more New Yorkers to get vaccinated and for leveraging CUNY’s strong reputation to help lead the State’s resurgence.”
Folks, this is pure insanity.
These individuals will do anything it takes to get you to inject an experimental vaccine, which still allows those who take it to contract the virus, in order to continue to convince the general public that the government knows what’s best for you and your health.
It isn’t about protecting people’s lives from COVID. What it’s all about is the word “compliance.” How far can the left push people? The more we allow, the more freedom they take.
