Get vaccinated and win a truck? MN-S citizens just might
- EFN Staff | September 07, 2021
If you are a Métis-Nation Saskatchewan citizen and are vaccinated or get vaccinated soon, you could win a prize, maybe even a new truck. Or a pontoon boat or scholarship for that matter as hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of prizes are available.
With the Delta Variant swirling around, infections going up and anti-vaxers getting more vocal, the stress on the health system has almost reached the breaking point. The best way to win against COVID and to protect yourself and family is through vaccination.
To encourage their citizens to get vaccinated, the Métis-Nation Saskatchewan has launched “This is your shot,” a vaccination incentive program encouraging Métis citizens to get fully vaccinated for a chance to win prizes. The draw is open to all fully vaccinated MN-S citizens.
“As the government of the Métis Nation in Saskatchewan, we will continue to do whatever we can for the health and wellbeing of our citizens and our communities,” says MN–S President Glen McCallum. “Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is our shot at getting back to the moments that matter most, like time spent with loved ones, attending live events, and holding social gatherings. Our Métis government is offering these vaccination incentives and supports to our citizens to do our part in encouraging everyone to get their vaccine.”
“We need to ensure COVID-19 vaccines are widely available. The Métis Nation– Saskatchewan government continues to partner with the Saskatchewan Health Authority to host vaccination clinics throughout the province during our This is Your Shot incentive program,” says MN–S Health Minister Marg Friesen. “We encourage citizens to get vaccinated and to protect each other to keep our families and communities safe.”
The contest is open to fully vaccinated Saskatchewan Métis citizens and citizens with applications in process. There will be an early bird draw on September 4th, weekly draws for educational scholarships and other prizes, as well as a final grand prize draw at the end of November. Prizes include a truck, a pontoon boat, snowmobile, laptops, cell phones, and a variety of gift cards. There are 80 educational scholarships of $25,000 for citizens aged 12-30 years old available.
