Shot For 100 is part of a public outreach campaign to increase awareness of the availability and benefit of COVID-19 vaccines. While initially for students of Louisiana institutions of higher education (IHEs), Shot For 100 is being expanded to all Louisianans who choose to become vaccinated against COVID-19.
Louisiana is offering a non-reloadable Visa prepaid card issued by the U.S. Bank National Association (U.S. Bank) that will be given to eligible participants following receipt of one dose of a COVID-19 vaccination at a participating COVID-19 vaccination site. The card will be loaded with a $100 value (minus any applicable U.S. Bank fees) following appropriate registration and activation, as determined solely by LDH.
Any person eligible for a first dose vaccine can receive a one-time Shot For $100 incentive card at participating sites. Anyone 17 years of age or younger will need parental consent in order to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and a parent or legal guardian must provide consent in order to participate in the Shot for 100 promotion.
If you are a student enrolled in a Louisiana institution of higher learning, and your IHE is participating in this program, you are eligible for participation if you receive at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccination through an IHE COVID-19 vaccination site. Students should contact their IHE administrators to determine whether or not their school is participating in the program. Students at participating IHE’s who have not yet been incentivized with a Shot For $100 gift card are eligible to receive a one-time Shot For $100 incentive card upon receiving a second dose.
Parental consent is required for individuals 17 years of age or younger in order to receive a COVID-19 vaccine and therefore will be required to participate in Shot For 100.
When you receive one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine from a participating COVID-19 vaccination site, you will be given an unloaded U.S. Bank Rewards Card along with instructions on how to register and activate your card.
Once you register at ShotFor100.com and provide the necessary information, you will receive a message that states that your card will be ready for activation forty-eight (48) hours after receipt.
Following the 48-hour period, your card will be loaded with a non-reloadable $100 value (minus any applicable U.S. Bank fees) and can be used once activated in accordance with the instructions.
Residents should fill out the webform and activate their cards as soon as possible as the program is limited. Instructions will be available onsite to assist.
