Since the inception of the novel COVID-19 vaccine, health authorities in the United State and beyond have been trying to come up with clever ways to encourage wary residents to get the jab. Well, here's one we hadn't heard of before.

According to WABI, a vaccine clinic that took place on Mount Desert Island in Bar Harbor today was giving away a free flatscreen TV to anyone who came in to get their shot.

The Bar Harbor Regency Hotel provided 50 TVs to the vaccine clinic hosted by MDI Hospital. The TVs were first come first serve to the first 50 people to sign up at the clinic.

There's no word on if the clinic went through all 50 TVs and if they plan on sourcing more for future vaccine incentives.
