Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The Juneau Chamber of Commerce has upped the ante in its Healthy Juneau Initiative.
The local chamber received part of a million-dollar state grant that went to the Alaska State Chamber of Commerce
Executive Director Craig Dahl talked about that on Action Line. "We're doubling the benefit. We're giving away $40 worth of gift cards for each person that gets a shot and we're actually giving it away for both the first shot and the second shot."
In addition, he says everyone who goes to one of the CBJ pop-up clinics will have their name put in for a drawing for five $1,000 cash prizes.
The $45,000 in funding for the program came from a million-dollar vaccine incentive grant program from the state that went to the Alaska State Chamber of Commerce which in turn spread the funding to local chambers around the state.
