University of Wyoming students and employees have more opportunities to receive cash and prizes for receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
In addition to UW’s vaccination reporting incentive programs for students and employees, an Albany County vaccination effort called You Call the Shots will launch Monday, Aug. 30.
Organized by a coalition of community members, with the support of local businesses, You Call the Shots will offer weekly raffles and other prizes of up to $2,500 for local residents to roll up their sleeves and make Laramie a safer place to work and live. Albany County residents 12 and older can preregister now at https://bit.ly/calltheshotslaramie.
Starting Aug. 30 and while supplies last, $25 gift cards will be given to those who receive the vaccine at the time of vaccination at these locations: the Downtown Clinic, Grand Avenue Urgent Care, Ivinson Medical Group, Pole Mountain Pharmacy, Ridley’s and Walmart.
Additionally, every Monday, Sept. 6-Oct. 4, there will be one weekly drawing for a $1,000 cash award. Multiple grand prize packages, including a $2,500 cash prize, will be awarded in October.
Entries are open to Albany County residents who have received their first vaccine shots. The full course of vaccination is required in order to redeem prizes; winners will be required to show proof of vaccination. Prize winners will be announced on social media every Friday following the weekly drawings.
Partners in You Call the Shots are Albany County Public Health, the city of Laramie, the Downtown Clinic, Downtown Laramie, Ivinson Memorial Hospital, the Laramie Chamber Business Alliance, United Way of Albany County, UW and Wyoming 2-1-1.
