MADISON, Wis. — More than 142,000 people in Wisconsin are eligible to receive a $100 gift card as a result of the state’s vaccine incentive program.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services says a total of 142,400 people got their first dose between August 20 and September 19, making them eligible to claim the $100 gift card reward.

“I want to thank the Wisconsinites who have stepped up to protect themselves, their community, and our state in the battle against COVID-19 and the Delta variant,” Gov. Tony Evers said in a statement. “Whether you got vaccinated in March or just this month, every shot in an arm is bringing us one step closer to putting this pandemic behind us and ensuring our state’s continued economic recovery.”

In order to get their $100, people will need to register at 100.wisconsin.gov or call 844-684-1064. Information gathered there will be used to verify the person had their first dose reported to the Wisconsin Immunization Registry between the eligible dates. Reward cards will then be mailed to the person’s Wisconsin address, but may take six to eight weeks to arrive.

People need to register by September 30 in order to claim their reward. Everyone ages 12 and up were eligible.

The latest data from the Department of Health Services shows a total of 3,274,484 people in Wisconsin — 56.2% of the eligible population — have now received at least one dose.
