Governor Laura Kelly Announces Kansans Vaccinated at Select Dillons Stores Eligible for $100

As COVID cases continue to rise statewide, vaccine clinics at select Dillons locations will offer $50 Visa gift cards per dose to encourage vaccination

TOPEKA – To encourage vaccinations and mitigate the spread of COVID-19, Governor Laura Kelly and Dillons Health today launched a new vaccine incentive program. All newly vaccinated Kansans 12+ are eligible to receive $50 per dose, $100 total.

“Getting every eligible Kansan vaccinated is critical to our efforts to slow the spread of the virus, protect our businesses, and keep kids in school,” Governor Kelly said. “This incentive program is a another tool to support our ongoing vaccine efforts. I want to thank Dillons officials for their partnership and their commitment to the communities they serve.”

“Since day one of this pandemic, Dillons’ most urgent priority has been the health and safety of our associates, customers, and communities,” said Steve Dreher, Dillons Stores Division President. “Together with Governor Kelly, we are pleased to extend this incentive as a means to inspire more individuals to get vaccinated and help our Kansas communities move forward.”

Vaccines will be administered in the pharmacies of the select Dillons locations listed below. Gift cards will be available on a first-come first-serve basis; Kansans who receive their vaccines at the select Dillons locations listed below will receive a form and a pre-stamped envelope after each dose. Once KDHE receives the completed form, a $50 Visa gift card will be mailed to the mailing address provided in the form, while gift card supplies last.

COVID-19 vaccines are provided at no cost; if recipients have insurance they should present their insurance card, but if recipients do not have insurance the vaccine will still be provided at no cost. All Kansans 12+ are eligible for the $100 incentive. No appointment required.
