COVID Vaccination Incentive Program Announced


The Alachua County Commission has authorized a new COVID Vaccination Incentive Program. Beginning September 1, until September 30, 2021 (participating CVS pharmacies will participate beginning September 3), Alachua County is giving a $25 gift card to those getting COVID-19 vaccinations. The gift cards will be available at the Florida Department of Health in Alachua County and other participating businesses. The incentive is available for each COVID-19 shot. Johnson & Johnson single shots will receive one $25 gift card, the Moderna and Pfizer shots will receive $25 for each shot, including booster shots.

“My fellow Commissioners and I are very excited that we are now at a 66% vaccination rate for citizens who are eligible to get the shot,” Commission Chair Ken Cornell said. “This incentive is just one more tool to help motivate folks to keep themselves, their families and our community safe.”

These incentives are for new vaccinations and are distributed after the COVID-19 vaccines are administered. Those who have already been vaccinated are not eligible.
