Governor Phil Murphy just announced a brand new way to encourage New Jerseyans to get vaccinated.

Yesterday, Gary Guida told you about New Jersey's brand new "Shot and a Beer" Program!

However, I do see a minor problem with the rules set in place: According to all of the posts, this deal is only applicable to those who get their first vaccine during the month of May.

What about the people who were proactive and got their vaccines before May? It is almost like we are punishing those who were first in line.

I get the idea of encouraging those who still have not scheduled an appointment yet but I definitely think this should apply to any and all who have been vaccinated because it is in the best interest for all!

Quick funny story about this announcement.

I saw Governor Phil Murphy's tweet about the "Shot & A Beer" Program and my first thought when I did some research was, "So, where is the free shot?"

Ooooohhhh...its the COVID-19 Vaccine SHOT for a beer! Man....what a buzzkill. Don't mind me. I'll just be over here.....LOL

But do you agree? Shouldn't ALL be eligible for the COVID-19 Vaccine perks?

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
