'It hasn't really moved the ball' - Gov. Lamont skeptical of cash incentives for vaccinations

In Connecticut, more than 1 million people are still unvaccinated - but could cold, hard cash change their minds? Gov. Ned Lamont isn't quite convinced.
President Joe Biden says when it comes to vaccine incentives, it's time for states to put their money where their mouth is.
"I'm calling on all states and local governments to use funding they have received including from the American Rescue Plan to give $100 to anyone who gets fully vaccinated," he says.
New York City just started cash payments - Over 2,100 New Yorkers have received their $100 vax incentive, according to Mayor Bill De Blasio's press secretary Bill Neidhardt.
The White House says the Kroger grocery store chain tried it as well, and saw vaccination rates jump to 75% from 50% among employees. And in a study conducted by the University of California, Los Angeles, roughly one-third of unvaccinated individuals said a cash payment would make them more likely to get a shot. 
In Connecticut, Lamont remains skeptical.
"We've done 'Drinks On Us.' We've done front row at rock concerts. Other people are giving you $1 million dollar lottery tickets. It hasn't really moved the ball dramatically," he says.
Still, Lamont says he is open to the idea of cash payments, and that "even moving the ball a little bit counts."
Stamford resident Marcia Palmer told News 12 that she would get the COVID-19 vaccine if offered money - but wants more than $100.
"I'm holding out. In other states, they offer more than $100 and people shell out. You know, money talks," she says.
Her friend, Daphne Mebwinter, says cash won't convince her.
"Well, I'm scared! I'm so scared," she says.
"$100 isn't going to make them change their mind," says Mary Jane McGoldrick, of Fairfield. "I mean, I know people who are dead-set against it."
There's also the question of fairness.
"I know that paying people to get vaccinated might sound unfair to folks who have gotten vaccinated already. But here's the deal: if incentives help us beat this virus, I believe we should use them," Biden says.
