Parents can now register their kids to receive Minnesota’s vaccine incentive for five to eleven year olds.

Earlier this month, Governor Tim Walz announced a $200 gift card to get kids in the five to eleven year old age group vaccinated against Covid-19. Registrations will remain open through the end of February.

The Kids Deserve a Shot program also offers the chance to win a $100,000 college scholarship for kids in that same age group.

Five scholarships are available and WDIO will be updating this story as more news comes in.
