More than 600 people vaccinated at Wisconsin State Fair with free cream puff incentive

Wisconsin State Fair Cream Puff 1280

MILWAUKEE — More than 600 people got vaccinated (and got a free cream puff) thanks to a vaccination drive at the Wisconsin State Fair.

In total, 608 people got a shot at the clinic, which ran every day of the State Fair. Within the first few days, health care workers gave out nearly 200 vaccines and cream puff vouchers.

“This is great news for our state as we work to get shots in arms and ensure our economy can recover from this pandemic,” Gov. Tony Evers said. “As the Delta variant spreads throughout our state, getting shots in arms is the best way to keep our each other and our communities safe. I encourage all Wisconsinites to get the vaccine as soon as possible by finding a provider near them.”

Health care workers offered Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines at the clinic.

The announcement came alongside a six-month high for the state’s seven-day average of new cases.
