Minnesotans who get their first COVID-19 shots at this year's State Fair will receive a $100 Visa gift card as a reward.
The incentive was announced on the eve of the 2021 State Fair by Gov. Tim Walz, who says the reward will be available to the 3,600 people who get their first vaccine dose at the fair.
Vaccines will be available in the Community Vaccine Clinic at the North End Event Center on Murphy Avenue, where Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson shots will be available. You can make an appointment ahead of time (click here) or walk in to get vaccinated between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m.
“If you’ve waited to get your shot, there’s never been a better opportunity: You can walk away with a $100 Visa gift card in-hand if you get your first COVID-19 dose at the State Fair,” said Governor Walz.
“We continue to be committed to meeting Minnesotans where they are and making it as convenient as possible to get a shot, including right at the Great Minnesota Get-Together. If you’re going to the State Fair and still need your first dose, just swing by the North End Event Center, get your shot, and get $100.”
The state recently ended its $100 COVID vaccine incentive program, which saw almost 80,000 Minnesotans apply for the reward after getting their vaccine.
