Summer Vaccine Incentives

Last week, Governor Walz launched ‘Your Shot to Summer,’ the state’s COVID-19 vaccine incentive campaign encouraging Minnesotans to roll up their sleeves and get their COVID-19 vaccine during the next month.

The campaign aims to get 70% of Minnesotans 16 years of age and older vaccinated by July 1. The first 100,000 Minnesotans who get their first shot by June 30 will be able to choose the reward of their preference from a wide-ranging list of options, including state parks passes, fishing licenses, and tickets to various summer attractions and events.

In order to be eligible, Minnesotans 12 years of age and older must receive their first dose between May 27, 2021, and June 30, 2021. Minnesotans can verify their first dose and indicate their preferred vaccine reward at Summer Vaccine Rewards.

Face Covering Reminders

MDH and CDC strongly recommend that anyone who is not fully vaccinated continue to wear face coverings indoors in businesses, public settings, and when around people from other households, as well as outdoors when social distancing cannot be maintained.

Some communities, businesses, and settings like health care and public transportation require masks for all people whether vaccinated or not. Additionally, face covering requirements for K-12 schools remain in effect through the end of the 2020-2021 school year, and face covering requirements for child care settings remain in effect through June 30, 2021 or until 70% of Minnesotans 16 years of age and older receive at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, whichever is earlier.

People who are fully vaccinated may choose to continue to wear a mask. People with weakened immune systems, even if fully vaccinated, should consult their health care provider for specific recommendations.

In certain circumstances, the use of masks may not be reasonable and accommodations should be considered. When face coverings are required by law, be sure to consider exemptions and guidance addressing the specific requirement. Accommodations might include safe alternatives, such as social distancing or contactless service options (e.g., curbside pickup).

It’s important that we all respect and follow these requirements and recommendations. Learn more at Face Covering Requirements and Recommendations.
