Incentives seem to be key right now in encouraging people to get vaccinated against COVID 19. Gift cards, donuts and even the Ohio Vaccine Lottery with its $ 1 million winners, there is an effort to make sure everyone gets the hang of it. But how far is too far?
A Michigan high school draws a line in the sand when it comes to getting the vaccine. Southfield Regional Academic Campus High School is selling tickets for their graduation party on June 14 with attractive ticket prices across the board.
In a post on the family information page, students interested in attending the event, which will be held at the Roostertail, will have two levels of tickets. Those who are fully vaccinated will be able to attend for free, while those who are not will see an $ 80 ticket price for the big night.

Breitbart News reports that the email ended with a warning that reads;
âSouthfield Public Schools does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, age, height, weight, marital status, genetic information or any another characteristic protected by law, in its programs and activities, including Employment Opportunities. “

Parents are expressing concerns on social media about the school move, saying it is a form of discrimination. The organizers of the very noisy group “Let Them Play” have already indicated that they will take legal action against the school.
