Evers launches $100 vaccine reward program in Wisconsin
OSHKOSH (WKBT) — Gov. Tony Evers on Monday announced a $100 reward program aimed at getting more Wisconsinites vaccinated against COVID-19.
Any Wisconsin residents who receive their first dose of any COVID-19 vaccine between Aug. 20 and Sept. 6 from a Wisconsin provider can collect a $100 Visa gift card.
Wisconsinites ages 12 and older are eligible for the reward, and proof of insurance, I.D., or citizenship are not required to be eligible for the vaccine or to receive the $100 reward.
“As our kids start returning back to school, and with the Delta variant spreading rapidly across the state, we all need to step up and stop the spread, and our COVID-19 vaccines are the best tools we have to do just that,” said Evers. “From now through Labor Day, if you’re a Wisconsin resident and you get your first COVID-19 shot here in the state, you will get $100 bucks. It’s that simple: get vaccinated, get $100. I’m calling on all eligible Wisconsinites who have not gotten their COVID-19 vaccine yet to step up, roll up their sleeve, and do their part to help protect our state and put an end to COVID-19.”
The program is intended to encourage people to get vaccinated by helping offset financial barriers to getting the vaccine and encourage vaccination as the Delta variant of COVID-19 spreads across the state.
