The days of paying people to get vaccinated are over. Now it is the "stick" of restricting access if you don't want to get vaccinated. This was posted on the Columbia Patch:
"Effective Sunday, all patrons attending events at Merriweather Post Pavilion must show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 or a negative test taken within the past 72 hours, along with a matching photo ID. This policy applies to those sitting inside the pavilion and those sitting outside on the lawn. While the entertainment venue isn't requiring masks, it states on its website masks are appreciated. Food and beverage concession stands will be cashless and accept only credit cards, Apple Pay, and Google Pay. Guests with fevers or exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 should stay home. All patrons are encouraged to use mobile ticketing."
