Attention Milwaukee iCare members,
The City of Milwaukee Health Department will launch a new COVID-19 vaccination incentive program beginning Thursday, February 3. Any eligible person 5 years of age and older who receives their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at any Milwaukee Health Department vaccination clinic will receive a $100 gift card on site (no forms to mail; no waiting!).
Currently, only 56.5% of city of Milwaukee residents five years and older have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Over 250,000 Milwaukee residents are eligible for this incentive. Vaccines protect not only yourself but also your community from COVID-19.
“Vaccination remains our strongest tool against the COVID-19 virus,” said Milwaukee Health Commissioner. “It is heartbreaking to continue to see people lose their lives to COVID-19 when they could have been protected by the vaccine. We hope that this incentive will help those who are on the fence make the life-saving decision to get vaccinated.”
The Milwaukee Health Department has 1,000 gift cards available on a first come basis at the Northwest Health Center, Southside Health Center, Menomonee Valley Site, and any mobile vaccination clinic. Hours and locations for health centers and full schedule of mobile clinics is available at Milwaukee.gov/covidvax.
