You Call the Shots Prepares for Grand Prize Giveaways
You Call the Shots is a local effort to increase COVID-19 vaccinations in Albany County
You Call the Shots has given away $4,000 in weekly prizes and continues to offer $25 gift cards at select vaccine locations for individuals getting vaccinated.
The program aims to boost local vaccination rates and improve the health and wellbeing of Albany County. Supported by various community members and local businesses, this community wide celebration thanks those rolling up their sleeves to make Laramie a safer place to live and work.
Prize winners have included a college junior, an elementary school assistant, an animal lover and a family building their new home in Laramie. The winners have shared many of the same sentiments as to their decision to get vaccinated, to protect their family members, to return to large events, to protect the younger population that are unable to be vaccinated and to prevent overwhelming the healthcare system. Prize money has helped residents pay for school, pay off large purchases and give back to local organizations.
Currently, in Albany County, 48 percent of residents eligible are fully vaccinated. Additionally, 52.7% of Albany County has received one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Next Monday, October 11, 2021, winners of the grand prizes will be drawn to conclude the giveaways. Those who have registered at bit.ly/calltheshotslaramie and are fully vaccinated by October 11 are eligible for one of the four grand prizes.
