Do you know what swag stands for? Stuff we all get.
The Teton County Health Department wants the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine to be the stuff we all get, and valley businesses have donated a pile of goodies for a raffle as well.
Anyone who has been inoculated against COVID-19 can enter drawings for weekly prizes including shirts, hats, outerwear, raft trips, home accessories and gift cards for restaurants, retail stores or local services.

Drawings will start the week of June 14 and continue weekly until the grand prize drawing the week of July 26.
The push is part of the health department’s goal to get Teton County’s vaccination rate up to 80% by the end of July.
“We want people to get back to the activities that they love while protecting their friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors by being vaccinated against COVID-19,” Teton Health Director Jodie Pond said in a release. “We hope many in our community will get vaccinated and sign up for a chance to win great prizes.”
Many people aren’t able to be vaccinated against COVID-19 because of age or health conditions, so health officials urge others to be vaccinated to help reduce or eliminate the spread of the virus to the community’s most vulnerable.
