The Springfield-Greene County Health Department is partnering with Community Partnership of the Ozarks and Community Foundation of the Ozarks to launch Greene for Vaccine, an incentive program to offer a chance to win $1,000 to those who get vaccinated.

This joint effort aims to motivate the 57% of Greene County residents who are not fully vaccinated to take this necessary step to protect our community. “CPO is proud to be a part of this important partnership,” stated Janet Dankert, president and CEO of CPO. “Increasing vaccination rates in our community is key to saving lives and ending the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The $5,000 in prize money is a part of a $20,000 donation from CFO to promote and incentivize vaccines. “Our mission is to improve the quality of life for everyone in our region, and health is a crucial part of that,” said Brian Fogle, president and CEO of the CFO. “We believe encouraging others to vaccinate against COVID-19 reflects that mission and protects our community.”

Greene for Vaccine will run from Aug 15 through Sept 18. Those who receive the first dose of Pfizer/Moderna or the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be automatically entered into a drawing following the end of the week they were vaccinated. The winner will be announced the following Monday: 

  • Week 1: Aug 15 - Aug 21, winner announce Aug 23
  • Week 2: Aug 22 - Aug 28, winner announce Aug 30
  • Week 3: Aug 29 - Sept 4, winner announce Sept 6
  • Week 4: Sept 5 - Sept 11, winner announce Sept 13
  • Week 5: Sept 12 - Sept 18, winner announce Sept 20 

More information and a list of vaccination opportunities at vaccine417.com or by calling the COVID-19 Call Center at 417-874-1211.

There is no registration required and individuals do not need to register to be entered into the drawing. Winners will be contacted privately and can remain anonymous if they choose. Springfield-Greene County Health Department, CPO, and CFO employees and their immediate families are not eligible for the drawing.
