How to claim your COVID-19 vaccination reward

Here is where you'll need to go, and what information you'll need.

Newly vaccinated Minnesotans can now officially request their freebie of choice.

The state's vaccine rewards site (called "Your Shot to Summer") opened Tuesday, June 1. It's here that recently and soon-to-be vaccinated Minnesotans can select one of the nine freebies being offered as part of a statewide incentive program. 

“If you still need to get your COVID-19 vaccine, now is the time to get double rewards! You will not only get protected for yourself and your community – you will also get a free pass to some of our most favorite Minnesota pastimes,” said Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan in the announcement.

To request one of the rewards, you'll need to fill out the form on this website. It asks for contact information (your name, email, phone number, etc.), as well as info about your COVID-19 vaccine – including where and when you received it, the manufacturer and the lot number. (All of that should be on your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card from the CDC, so be sure to have that handy).

Then you'll pick your freebie of choice and submit.

Rewards will be given to the first 100,000 eligible people who submit a request. Anyone age 12 and up can get one of the perks, but it is only available to those who receive their first shot from May 27 through June 30. All requests have to be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on June 30, and will be fulfilled on a rolling basis, the state says. 

Gov. Tim Walz has said the purpose of the giveaways - which are being paid for with federal relief funds - is to incentivize more Minnesotans to get vaccinated. He has set 70% as the target adult vaccination rate statewide, which he's hoping to hit by July 1.

As of Tuesday, the 16+ vaccination rate is 64.6%.
