Governor Kate Brown announced Friday that the state will offer a lottery program to offer a $1-million grand prize which everyone 18 and over who gets the COVID-19 vaccine will be eligible to win. We discuss this with Dr. Patrick Luedtke of Lane County Public Health.
We also talk about the potential for community immunity, vaccine accessiblity, children and COVID-19, and take listener questions.
You can send in your question for next week's Friday Show. Leave a voicemail at 503-877-3198 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
