Registration forms are now available for Minnesota parents to claim their $200 Visa gift card for vaccinating their 5-11 year old children against COVID.
Earlier this month, the Walz-Flanagan Administration launched the “Kids Deserve a Shot” program to help boost child vaccination rates. After announcing the program on January 11th, first dose vaccination rates for 5-11 year olds increased by 14% week over week.
According to data from the Mayo Clinic, Minnesota is the first in the Midwest and sixth in the County for fully vaccinated children in that age group.
Registration for the Visa cards opened at 10am on Monday and will stay open until February 28th.
