The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) today introduced “Vax for the Win,” a campaign to provide cash incentives to state residents who get fully vaccinated against COVID-19. 

CDPH will offer $50 gift cards to the next 2 million state residents who get fully vaccinated. Gift cards will be distributed digitally following completion of a two-dose series or after receiving a single-dose vaccine. 

All Californians who have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine will be entered into a drawing for cash prizes. Thirty state residents will win $50,000 each, with half of the winners chosen on June 4 and half on June 11. Ten state residents will win $1.5 million each, and winners will be selected on June 15, the day the state plans to fully reopen the economy.

Learn more about “Vax for the Win” at covid19.ca.gov/vax-for-the-win or by calling 833-993-3873.

COVID-19 vaccine is widely available in Humboldt County. Public Health has two mass-vaccination clinics scheduled in Eureka over the next two weeks. Go to MyTurn.ca.gov to sign up. Appointments are encouraged but not required. See the schedule and which vaccines are offered below. 

  • Wednesday, June 2 — 2 to 6 p.m. — College of the Redwoods — Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson
  • Saturday, June 5 — 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. — Eureka High School — Pfizer

The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is authorized for people 18 years and up. All county residents age 12 and older can receive the Pfizer vaccine. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. 

Many local pharmacies are also offering the COVID-19 vaccine, and all that do allow walk-ins. Go to vaccines.gov to check availability at participating pharmacies. 

A total of 4,279 Humboldt County residents have tested positive after 13 new cases were reported today.

With nearly 11,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine on hand, Humboldt County Public Health will request 1,170 doses of the Pfizer vaccine from the State of California for next week.
