Biden Administration Incentivizes Vaccination Through Dating Apps

The Biden administration announced on Friday that they will partner with a number of popular dating apps like Tinder, OkCupid, Hinge, BLK and Chispa, to promote vaccination status among single people.

The pandemic has also had a negative impact on young people’s social lives. Social distancing and dating we’re always a bit of a challenging combination. So today, dating sites like Bumble, Tinder, Hinge, Match, OKCupid, BLK, Chispa, Plenty of Fish and Badoo are announcing a series of features to encourage vaccinations and help people with that — help people meet people who have that universally attractive quality: They’ve been vaccinated against Covid-19. These sites cater to over 50 million people in the U.S., and are some of the world’s biggest non-gaming apps. Here’s one for you: According to one of the sites, OKCupid, people who display their vaccination status are 14 percent more likely to get a match. We have finally found the one thing that makes us all more attractive — a vaccination. These dating apps will now allow vaccinated people to display badges, which show their vaccination status, filtered specifically to see only people who are vaccinated and offer premium content, details of which I cannot get into. But apparently they include things like boosts and super swipes.
