UPDATE: The big prizes have been given out, but they're still handing out $50 gift cards and other organizations are now donating really amazing prizes to encourage anyone who still hasn't been vaccinated yet to get their shots.
More than anywhere else, downtowns have a keen interest in seeing as many people vaccinated as possible. That's because our normal mode of operating is face to face and highly persona. We can't fully return to normal until the pandemic is completely behind us so if you're able to be vaccinated, please do so.
If you haven't been vaccinated yet, did you know that as part of California's Vax for the Win program you can get a $50 gift card and a chance to win prizes of $50,000 and $1.5 million as a reward for getting vaccinated? You just have to get at least your first shot by June 15th to qualify.
If you're ready to get vaccinated, just head over to myturn.ca.gov.
