Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers hopes FDA approval of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, and a new state vaccine reward program, will drive up the state’s vaccine numbers.
“This is a double header for us, a double header win. One is, we’re providing this incentive, we think it’s going to make a difference. And we do believe that the approval of Pfizer is going to make a huge difference, too,” Evers said Monday during a press conference in Oshkosh. “You hear it all the time, people will say ‘well, they’ve just been emergency approved, now this one has been approved fully.”

Now through Labor Day, Wisconsin residents who get a first dose of a COVID vaccine will get a hundred dollar VISA gift card.
“With the COVID-19 vaccine reward program, you’re not only going to protect your communities and save lives, but you’re also going to get a hundred dollar VISA gift card to spend any place you want to, and for whatever you want to,” Evers said.
