GRAND JUNCTION, Colo — Governor Jared Polis feels it’s so important that for those who have received at least one dose, you now have an opportunity to get some cash.

Governor Polis says, “starting tomorrow, the state of Colorado is offering 100 dollar Walmart cards while supply lasts at sites in particularly under-vaccinated areas.”

The Governor also says there are 298 hospitalizations in Colorado, 50 of those discharged in the past 24 hours and he wants everyone vaccinated as soon as possible.

The ticket out of the pandemic is to get vaccinated.

According to Governor Polis, the state is inching closer to residents becoming fully protected.

Polis added, “we are at 71.13% of adults in Colorado have gotten at least one dose, on their way to being fully protected, ending  the pandemic.”

The Power the Comeback bus was back in Grand Junction on Wednesday at St. Mary’s Pavilion. If you want to follow the Governors directive, it will be back in Grand Junction on July 25th at St. Joseph’s Church from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

One of two stops in Grand Junction on Wednesday.

The bus offers residents a safe and comfortable environment to get vaccinated.

Some say the vaccine is a trip to the beach.

Trent Hibberd, a traveler says he got vaccinated, “to travel out of the country. They wouldn’t allow me to travel without being vaccinated and I like the beach too much. Do whatever you prefer and if you need to do it, then do it.”
