Get a COVID-19 vaccine in April & you could win $500

April 2, 2021 – FYI, News

Anyone who gets a COVID-19 vaccine at a first-dose clinic at Centennial Hall, Fred Meyer Pharmacy, or Ron’s Apothecary Shoppe in April will have the opportunity to win one of two cash prizes: $500 will go to the first ticket drawn and $250 to the second ticket drawn. Funding for the prizes is provided by the Juneau Emergency Medical Associates – physicians, specialists, and emergency medical care in-residence at Bartlett Regional Hospital.

Sign up for a vaccine now:

  • Centennial Hall clinic April 5-8 or April 17: Go to juneau.org/vaccine or call 586-6000 from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily.
  • Fred Meyer Pharmacy: Go to this statewide website (click on the Juneau button) to find appointments.
  • Ron’s Apothecary Shoppe: Go to this statewide website (click on the Juneau button) to find appointments.

Anyone age 16 and up is eligible to receive a vaccine. The Pfizer vaccine is an option for ages 16 and up. The Moderna vaccine and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine are options for people ages 18 and up.

The Centennial Hall clinics on April 5 – 8 and April 17 will have daily drawings for two cash prizes. After checking in at the clinic and getting the vaccine, you’ll be monitored for 15 minutes for any adverse reactions. During that wait time, you’ll be offered the opportunity to enter the daily $500 and $250 drawing; it’s not required. Clinic staff will draw two names at the end of each clinic and contact the day’s winners.

Fred Meyer Pharmacy and Ron’s Apothecary will conduct the drawing at the end of several clinics in April.

The Centennial Hall clinic distributes the Pfizer vaccine. Second-dose appointments 21 days later will be made at the clinic. Everyone is required to wear a mask. The clinic is organized by Bartlett Regional Hospital, Central Council of the Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska, Juneau Public Health Center, SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium, and City and Borough of Juneau.
