USA TODAY/Children ages 5 to 11 are now eligible for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine and cities like New York City and Chicago are incentivizing kids to get vaccinated.

Children in New York City can either gain $100 if they receive their first dose of the vaccine within the city or tickets to city attractions.
