Wis. – Governor Tony Evers and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) urge Wisconsinites to get vaccinated by Sunday, September 19 in order to qualify for the $100 COVID-19 Vaccine Reward Program. The program opened August 20 and is available to anyone ages 12 and up in Wisconsin who gets their first dose of COVID-19 by Sunday.

Between August 20 and September 13, more than 114,900 Wisconsinites have received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

“The COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective, and it’s the best tool we have to make sure we continue our economic recovery and put this pandemic behind us,” said Gov. Evers. “There are just a few days left for folks to take advantage of our vaccine reward program, and I encourage every eligible Wisconsinite to get their shot so they can get $100.” In order to receive the $100 reward, Wisconsin residents will need to fill out the form available at 100.wisconsin.gov or call 844-684-1064 to register over the phone. Information submitted will be used to verify that individuals have a valid first COVID-19 vaccine dose reported to the Wisconsin Immunization Registry (WIR) between August 20 and September 19. Rewards cards will be mailed to the individual’s Wisconsin address and may take six to eight weeks to be mailed to participants. Registration for the program will remain open until September 30, 2021, but only those who receive their first COVID-19 vaccine dose between August 20 and September 19 are eligible for the $100 reward. Proof of insurance, I.D., or citizenship are not required
