DHS: More than 142K individuals vaccinated during vaccine reward program
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Wisconsin Department of Health services (DHS) announced more than 142,400 individuals have received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine since the launch of the $100 COVID-19 Vaccine Reward Program.
DHS made the announcement on Monday, Sept. 20. The program has since closed.
Wisconsinites 12 years old and older who received their first dose of the vaccine between Aug. 20 and Sept. 19 from a vaccine provider in Wisconsin, Michigan or Minnesota will still have time to submit their information by Sept. 30 to claim their $100 reward.
“I want to thank the Wisconsinites who have stepped up to protect themselves, their community, and our state in the battle against COVID-19 and the Delta variant,” said Gov. Evers. “Whether you got vaccinated in March or just this month, every shot in an arm is bringing us one step closer to putting this pandemic behind us and ensuring our state’s continued economic recovery.”
