Commissioner of Health Justa Encarnacion advises the public that the V.I. Department of Health (VIDOH) has replenished its supply of COVID-19 Gift Incentive Cards and will be distributing them based on the contact information clients provided when vaccines were received earlier this year.

Card distribution will begin on Friday, Oct. 14, with DOH personnel reaching out to eligible recipients and advising them of the date and time to retrieve their cards.

The public is reminded that the community health clinics will distribute incentive cards to qualified persons from the April incentive program. The clinics will distribute the incentive cards on a scheduled basis and persons picking up their incentive cards are asked only to report on the day and time given when contacted by the DOH staff.

People will need their vaccination cards and proper identification when they arrive at their appointed time.

Commissioner Encarnacion thanks the public for their patience and understanding as the Department of Health has worked to replenish the incentive cards promised in April.
