Health insurers offer $25 gift card and unlimited-ride wristbands to people getting a Covid-19 shot at the Kentucky State Fair

At the Kentucky State Fair, the Kentucky Association of Health Plans is giving free, unlimited-ride wristbands and $25 gift cards (while supplies last) to attendees who go to booth B419 in the Health Horizons Pavilion in South Wing B to get a Covid-19 vaccine or booster shot. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Medicaid members may also be eligible to receive an incentive offered by their health plan in addition to the giveaway, KAHP said in a news release.

On Aug. 19, KAHP is partnering with Kentucky Sports Radio for a live KSR pre-show and KSR broadcast at the Fair from 9 a.m. to noon ET.

“Offering vaccines and incentives in non-traditional environments has been a winning formula,” said Tom Stephens, executive director of KAHP. “We had tremendous traffic at the fair last year. We also gave away gas cards at a June pop-up clinic during the Kentucky High School Athletic Association baseball and softball championships and we’re proud to vaccinate 700 people.”

KAHP says it has been engaged in a 16-phase effort for vaccination, including a KSR tour, to a theme-park vacation-getaway drawing, gas-card giveaways, non-profit vaccine-clinic competitions with large grant payouts, school vaccine-clinic incentives.
