Vaccine incentive program opens for Minnesota kids

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.
