Get a vaccine and Juneau Chamber of Commerce will give you a $20 gift card & a shot at $1,000
The Juneau Chamber of Commerce is giving $20 gift cards, as well a chance to win one of five $1,000 cash drawings, to people who get a first dose or a single dose COVID-19 vaccine. The Healthy Juneau Initiative, which runs June 3 – 29, aims to provide incentives to Juneau residents to get vaccinated.
Here’s how the Chamber of Commerce Healthy Juneau Initiative works:
Gift card giveaway – From June 3 to June 29, get a first dose of a Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, at a City and Borough of Juneau/Public Health vaccine clinic, or a participating pharmacy or clinic, and you’ll immediately be given a $20 gift card to a Juneau business.
$1,000 raffle – From June 3 to June 29, get a first dose, a single dose, or a second dose COVID-19 vaccine at a CBJ/Public Health vaccine clinic, or a participating pharmacy or clinic, and get entered into one of five $1,000 cash drawings. The drawings will occur on June 30.
Funding for the prizes is provided by the Juneau Chamber of Commerce through the Alaska Chamber and Alaska Department of Health & Social Services vaccine incentive grant program.
