COVID-19 Vaccine Incentives Offered at Friday’s “Festival of Friendship” Event

(Sedgwick County, KS) – Sedgwick County Health Department (SCHD) is holding two vaccine incentive events this Friday, Feb. 11. The events will take place at two locations: SCHD’s Community Vaccine Clinic, 223 S. Main, from 9 a.m.–7 p.m., and Garvey Sports Center YMCA, 1410 S. Glendale, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

  • People who get a first dose of COVID-19 vaccine will receive a $50 Visa gift card; their choice of incentives including household items, children’s toys, electronics, games, and others; and a t-shirt.
  • People who get a booster dose will receive a $50 Visa gift card and a t-shirt.
  • People who get a second or third dose will receive a t-shirt.

“We offer these incentives to provide extra encouragement for anyone who might be holding back on getting that first shot or completing their vaccine series,” says Adrienne Byrne, Director of SCHD.

“Omicron showed us it’s important to stay up-to-date on the vaccine, and we want people to get that booster shot to keep their immune systems strong,” she added.

Kansas Department of Health & Environment provided the Visa gift card incentives.

SCHD will provide first doses through boosters of Pfizer vaccine for ages 5 and older and Johnson & Johnson vaccine for people over 18 at the event.

Identification is not required to get vaccinated, but proof of prior vaccination(s) expedites registration. Individuals under 18 years old must have parent or guardian consent for vaccination.
