Minnesota Bribes Families With $200 Visa Gift Card and $100K Scholarship Drawing to Inoculate 5-11 Year Olds Against COVID-19
The Minnesota government has resorted to bribing families with financial incentives to inoculate their 5-11-year-old children against COVID-19.
Minnesota announced the “Kids Deserve a Shot!” program to sway parents to get their young children inoculated against an illness that poses no threat to them.
The state will give $200 Visa gift cards to families whose children get the two-dose series in January or February.
Minnesotans 5-11 years old who receive the COVID-19 injections will also have a chance to win a $100,000 scholarship in a drawing this spring.

It was sickening enough to watch governments around the country bribe adults to participate in this medical experiment.
But the Minnesota government has taken the wicked program to a new level by targeting young children.

$100,000 Minnesota College Scholarship Drawings

The Center Square reported:
“In light of the Omicron variant, there is a new sense of urgency in our response, and we are doing whatever we can to encourage Minnesotans to get their vaccine and keep themselves and their communities safe,” Minnesota Department of Health Information Officer Doug Schultz told The Center Square in an emailed statement Thursday. “Getting as many eligible Minnesotans vaccinated as possible is critical to helping curb the spread of COVID-19 and keep Minnesota families safe.”
Minnesota is one of the leaders in the nation in vaccinating children 5- to-11 years old, but this age group has the lowest rate of vaccination in the state, the Tuesday release said.
Schultz said only 26% of Minnesotans in the age group are fully vaccinated, which is three months after they became eligible to get the vaccine. Vaccinations among Minnesotans aged 12 to 17 increased 40% within a week of the launch of the initial “Kids Deserve a Shot” campaign, an October news release from Walz’s office said.
“We hope this will serve as an incentive for families to get vaccinated as early in the new year as possible to keep our kids safe and in school,” he said.
There is no limit to the number of families that can receive the incentive, Schultz said. All Minnesota children who receive their doses by a registration deadline will be eligible for entry into a drawing that spring that will offer five $100,000 Minnesota college scholarships. More details about the programs are available here.
Minnesota DOH Officer Dough Schultz commented that 26% of Minnesotans aged 5-11 are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
That’s 26% too high since no child needs this dangerous shot for an illness that poses statistically zero risk to them.
It’s criminal to risk an innocent child’s health with life-threatening side effects such as myocarditis or blood clots.
Any family accepting a bribe to inoculate their children with this biological agent should feel shame for the rest of their lives.
