A Washington state jail has a unique new incentive to encourage inmates to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
The Benton County Jail is giving inmates instant ramen noodles when they sign up to receive their first dose of the vaccine. The jail says it has given out 900 packets of noodle soup to a total of 90 inmates since implementing the program.
Each inmate that rolls up their sleeve for the jab, gets 10 packs of the noodles. The jail is sharing the success story with other institutions around the state.
