HONOLULU – Officials in Hawaii are preparing to announce new incentives for people to be vaccinated, and Las Vegas hotels could play a role.
While the details are thin, Hawaii News Now reported Monday that officials from the Hawaii Restaurant Association and Hawaii retailers said they had been asked to find companies willing to participate.
Josh Green, governor of Hawaii, said more details would be released soon. He also said he would contact Las Vegas hotels to see if they would attend.
“My team will be reaching out to some Las Vegas hotels to see if they’re ready to offer a couple of nights on the ninth island,” Green told Hawaii News Now.
Hawaii has given approximately 1.5 million doses of the coronavirus vaccine. Green said the state hopes to get about 2 million shots in the arms.
