Here’s How Minnesotans Can Claim Their $100 Vaccination Reward
I can't say I'm a big fan of this vaccine reward idea. On the other hand, whatever it takes, I think we need to do it. I guess, my hope was that we would all do this on our own. For our own health and the health and safety of our families, friends, co-workers and communities.
But, whatever it takes to get this virus under control, I'm all for it. New York City, so far, has implemented a pretty strong push for people to get vaccinated by making it mandatory to be vaccinated to be allowed in any public establishments in the city.
New York City bars, restaurants, theaters, gyms, etc. all require people to be vaccinated. That's pretty rough but it's working. Reports have it that pharmacies in the city are packed with people looking to get vaccinated.
Hopefully, Minnesota's $100 Visa gift card incentive will do as well. The $100 Visa gift card reward for vaccinations is limited to the first 24,330 eligible submissions. The program may be extended if the governor can obtain additional funds.
According to WCCO, Governor Walz had this to say “If you are still waiting to get your vaccine, this is your chance to get $100 just for rolling up your sleeves,” Walz said. “We face a critical juncture in the pandemic – the Delta variant is pushing cases up across the country, including right here in Minnesota. As we head into the fall and kids go back to school, the best tool we have to fight COVID-19 is any of the three safe, free, and highly effective vaccines. Now is the time to get your shot, and get $100, Minnesota.”
