Detroit is offering a $50 prepaid debit gift card to anyone who drives a neighbor to their vaccination appointment at the city’s drive-through site. It is an expansion of a program that started in February in which Detroiters became eligible for a vaccine if they drove an older city resident to get their shot. The Missouri Senate voted against paying to expand Medicaid as called for by voters last year. The Senate’s vote locked in the House’s decision to refuse funding for the program, likely setting up a court battle with supporters of greater access to healthcare in the state. Missouri’s new eligibility rules will take effect in July. It’s unclear how the lack of funding by lawmakers will impact that.
