In Josephine County, 47% of residents age 16 or older have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine. To encourage more people to get vaccinated, the county’s public health department is giving local health care providers $25 reward cards to give to residents who receive a dose of any COVID-19 vaccine.

Using Oregon Health Authority funds, 500 Visa Reward Cards have been disseminated to participating COVID-19 vaccine providers in Josephine County. The reward cards are given to residents age 12 and older at the time of vaccination.

Residents receiving the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, which requires two doses, are eligible for one $25 card for each dose. Cards cannot be issued retroactively to those who have already received the vaccine.

“While COVID-19 restrictions have lifted across Oregon, the virus is still active and spreading in Josephine County,” said Dr. Leona O’Keefe, JCPH deputy health officer. “Those who have not been vaccinated remain vulnerable to infection and can spread the virus, including the fast-spreading Delta variant.”

To schedule an appointment for a first or second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and receive a $25 Visa Reward Card, fill out the Josephine County COVID-19 Vaccination Appointment Request Form or call the county’s vaccination call center at (541) 916-7030.
