$50 gift cards now available for COVID-19 booster doses

COVID-19 News

Beginning March 28, people who receive a COVID-19 booster dose at Springfield-Greene County Health Department vaccine clinics are eligible to receive a $50 gift card upon vaccination.

The gift card program has been open to people receiving first and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine since October. In that time, the Health Department has distributed 5,120 gift cards. 

Expanding the gift card program to booster doses can help further reduce the impact of COVID-19 in the community. Booster doses have proven to be effective in bolstering protection against COVID-19 infection, severe illness, hospitalization and death. The Health Department encourages everyone who is eligible to get a booster dose. 

Upcoming clinics

Community members can attend this week’s clinics to receive their primary or booster doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and receive a $50 gift card, while supplies last.
