The State of California has started an incentive program to get as many people as possible vaccinated for Covid-19 by June 15, 2021. Californians who have received the vaccine are already entered for cash prizes, and those who haven’t yet been vaccinated are encouraged to do so as soon as possible to become eligible. Read details here.
Monterey Fire Department will offer free Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccinations for ages 18 and up at the Old Monterey Farmer's Market on Alvarado Street every Tuesday, 4pm-6pm. No appointment necessary - just stop by. (They'll sign you up for a gift card!) Find more vaccination locations here.

The first 2 million Californians to be vaccinated after May 27 will receive a $50 Virtual Prepaid Card (which can be spent online or in-store wherever major debit cards are accepted), OR a $50 grocery gift card for Kroger (Ralphs, Food 4 Less) or Albertsons (Safeway, Vons, Albertsons, Andronico’s).
