FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - 6,500 Minnesotans have claimed the $100 VISA gift card vaccination bonus for getting the COVID shot. Governor Walz is offering the bonus to Minnesota residents who get their first COVID shot from July 30 to August 15.

Anyone 12 years of age and older can submit a request for the gift card. Adults may submit forms for minors who have received the vaccine. The governor says we’re at a critical juncture in the pandemic with the delta variant pushing up case counts, saying the best tool we have right now is to get vaccinated.

Many states have implemented a similar plan to encourage vaccinations as the highly-contagious Delta Variant spreads.
