The Greater Juneau Chamber of Commerce is giving $20 gift cards and 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 City and Borough of Juneau and chamber announced in a joint release.
The program, called the Healthy Juneau Initiative, runs June 3-29, according to the city and chamber. It aims to provide incentives to Juneau residents to get vaccinated.
During that time, people who 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, a participating pharmacy or clinic will immediately be given a $20 gift card to a Juneau business.
There will also be a $1,000 raffle. People who get a first dose, a single dose or a second dose COVID-19 during the initiative at a city clinic or participating location will 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, according to the city and chamber.
