The St. Joseph County United Way is offering $50 gift cards to people who receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
The promotion will conclude Sept. 30th or until the inventory of gift cards has been exhausted.
United Way Executive Director Kelly Hostetler said the agency was the recipient of $58,000 to help local healthcare providers get more people vaccinated in St. Joseph County.
The plan is to put that money into the local economy by purchasing gift cards from area businesses.
Both the local health department and Covered Bridge Healthcare have mobile units and can make house calls.
There are no United Way donor dollars being used for this initiative.
In addition to the gift cards, anyone who receives a vaccine between Sunday through September 30 will be eligible to win a gaming system.
