The City Of Columbus Will Pay Residents $100 To Get Vaccinated

There have been plenty of incentives offered to encourage people to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

On June 14, Columbus City Council is expected to vote on a proposal that will definitely offer that encouragement. The proposal will give $100 to city residents who receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

“There will be $50 each for proof of a first and second dose, if it’s Pfizer or Moderna, and then that $100 for the single-dose for J&J,” Councilmember Elizabeth Brown said.

Funding for the proposal would come from a $275,000 grant. It is expected to pass City Council and once it does, the Columbus Urban League will be in charge of distributing the funds. In order to be eligible, city residents must be vaccinated after the passage of the proposal.
