LAS VEGAS, Nev. (KOLO) - As we inch closer to July 4 and President Joe Biden’s goal of having 70 percent of Americans at least partially vaccinated by that date, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak is hinting at incentives for Nevadans to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

In an interview in Las Vegas on Tuesday with KVVU, the governor said it may look a bit different from what we have seen in other states.

“We’ve got a program coming forward. You’re going to see a lot more within the next, oh, five to seven days, I’d say. I think it’s a pretty innovative program. It’s a little bit different from what some of the other states have been doing. And It’s exciting. It’s something to give people some fun and encourage them.”

The governor went on to encourage anyone who hasn’t gotten the COVID-19 vaccine to get vaccinated.

Also on Tuesday, U.S. Rep. Dina Titus of Nevada introduced legislation to create a national lottery to incentivize people to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
