Missouri governor launches campaign for vaccinated Missourians: a chance at $10,000

JEFFERSON CITY, MO. JULY 21, 2021 Today, during a press conference at the State Capitol, Governor Mike Parson announced the launch of a statewide COVID-19 vaccination incentive program, MO VIP, to encourage vaccination among all Missourians age 12 and up. Over the next three months, 900 Missourians who have or will choose to be vaccinated will win cash or education savings account prizes in the amount of $10,000.

"We understand that the some Missourians are hesitant towards getting the vaccine, but we must all take personal responsibility and do right by our own health and that of our friends and family by getting vaccinated," Governor Parson said. "This new program will complement our existing efforts to educate Missourians about the importance of getting the vaccine. Our current COVID-19 situation is serious. This Delta variant transmits faster than what we have previously seen and is more likely to impact children and the unvaccinated, so now is the perfect opportunity to get vaccinated and earn your shot at $10,000."


Missouri is a Covid hot spot. The state's vaccination rate is 40%. Per capita it has the second highest Covid hospitalization rate in the nation. Missouri's rate of confirmed Covid cases (hospitalized or not) and its Covid death rate are both the third highest in the US.

Missouri reported 3,031 new cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, a daily case count not seen since mid-January. The state also reported eight more deaths due to the virus.
