MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Gov. Tony Evers and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) announced eligibility for the $100 COVID-19 Vaccine Reward Program will be extended to Sun., Sept. 19, 2021.
The program opened Aug. 20 and is available to anyone ages 12 and up in Wisconsin who gets their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine by Sept. 19.
According to a news release from Gov. Evers' office, between Aug. 20 and Sept. 1, more than 65,000 Wisconsinites have received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. This extended deadline provides an opportunity for even more people to get vaccinated.
“We’re excited to see so many Wisconsinites across the state rolling up their sleeves to get the COVID-19 vaccine to help protect the health and safety of themselves and others and claiming their $100 reward,” said Gov. Evers. “I'm glad to be able to extend this program to give others the opportunity to take advantage of this great offer, and to do their part to help protect our state and stop the spread of the Delta variant.”
In order to receive the $100 reward, Wisconsin residents will need to register by filling out the form available HERE or call 844-684-1064 to register over the phone. Information submitted will be used to verify that individuals have a valid first COVID-19 vaccine dose reported to the Wisconsin Immunization Registry (WIR) between Aug. 20 and Sept. 19.
Rewards cards will be mailed to the individual’s Wisconsin address and may take six to eight weeks to be mailed to participants.
