In May, the state of California launched an incentive program to boost support and encourage individuals to participate in the vaccination program.
If you got vaccinated between May 27 and July 18, you can still apply to collect a $50 incentive card.
California’s vaccine incentive program “You Call the Shot California”, effective May 27, 2021, still offers a $50 incentive card for two million individuals who completed their vaccination process between May 27 and July 18.
Eligible to participate in "You Call The Shot California" are individuals who:
- Have been vaccinated between May 27 and July 18
- Live in California
- Are age 12 or older (for those younger than 18, the card selection process must be completed by a parent or guardian)
You can choose between a $50 virtual cash card, Kroger card, or Albertson's card. The application process is pretty simple. You get a code after your vaccination (via email or text within 7-10 days) and then you redeem and pick your reward (within 90 days).
It can take up to five business days to receive the incentive card, and once claimed, the Virtual Mastercard® expires after 12 months, whereas the grocery cards never expire.
To prevent attempts at cheating with a fake vaccine card, the incentive cards will be awarded based on immunization records, where COVID-19 vaccines are tracked. The program is being paid for by the State of California and cards will only be available for the first 2 million eligible individuals who apply.
