(ABC 6 News) – Governor Tim Walz announced the registration form is now open for Minnesota parents to claim a $200 Visa gift card for their fully vaccinated 12- to 17-year-olds.

Tuesday is also the last day for eligible teens to get a first dose in time to complete their vaccination series and qualify for the gift card. In order to be eligible for a $200 Visa gift card, Minnesotans 12-17 must start and complete their vaccination series between October 18 and November 30.

“Registration is open — and you can now claim your $200,” said Governor Tim Walz. “And don’t miss the amazing weekly drawings for fully vaccinated kids 12- to 17-years-old — we’ve got $100,000 college scholarships, Vikings player meet-and-greets, the first pitch at a free Twins game, a Zamboni ride at a free Wild game, and more. All it takes is rolling up your sleeves and getting your COVID-19 vaccine.”

Parents can register their fully vaccinated 12- to 17-year-old for a $200 Visa gift card online by visiting the ‘Kids Deserve a Shot’ webpage. Registration for the Visa gift cards will be open until 11:59 p.m. on November 30. Parents can learn more about vaccinating their children at: mn.gov/vaxforkids/.

Parents will also be able to enter their child in the weekly $100,000 Minnesota college scholarship and experience drawings. Last week Governor Walz announced the initial lineup of Minnesota experiences that will be awarded to winners of the weekly drawings for the ‘Kids Deserve a Shot’ vaccine incentives campaign. Experiences were donated from the Vikings, Twins, Wild, Lynx, Timberwolves, United, St. Paul Saints, University of Minnesota Golden Gophers, First Avenue, Como Zoo, and Wintergreen Dogsled Lodge. Minnesotans can learn more about the experiences at mn.gov/covid19/vaccine/vaccine-rewards/kids-deserve-a-shot/index.jsp.

Minnesotans can make an appointment through the Vaccine Connector.
