This weekend only, make $200 if you get vaccinated in Ramsey County

The offer comes as the Delta variant surges across the country.

If you get vaccinated in Ramsey County this weekend, you'll make 200 bucks. 

Emphasis on "this weekend," though. The opportunity expires at 11:59 p.m. Sunday.

On Friday, Ramsey County announced it would give a $100 Visa gift card to those who get vaccinated locally, adding to the $100 currently being offered by the state of Minnesota.

Ramsey County's offer is open to all Minnesotans — you don't have to live in Ramsey County to be eligible.

The statewide offer began August 4 and is scheduled to end at midnight Sunday, offering a short window to take advantage of both vaccine incentives at once.

You can sign up to get vaccinated in Ramsey County right here. Registration for the statewide offer can be found here.

Minnesota's vaccination efforts are showing signs of payoff, with the state reporting Thursday that 70% of all Minnesotans ages 16 and up have had at least one shot.

It was reported Friday that vaccination rates among Minnesota's kids have doubled in the past two weeks, thanks in large part to the state's "Vax to School" initiative.
