Leaders announced the county’s plan to offer $100 cash cards to any county employee who gets their first vaccine dose against COVID-19 at an upcoming board of health community clinic. Find dates and times for clinics right here.
This is on top of the state’s incentive that already offers $100 to all state employees.
Yesterday, Ohio announced that state employees could also gain an extra $900 for getting vaccinated, if certain percentages of workers get vaccinated by certain dates. Agencies that reach a 65% vaccination rate by Oct. 15 can count on an extra $300 in a future paycheck, and those that reach 85% by Nov. 15 can expect an extra $600.
During the Wednesday press conference, Terry Allan with the Cuyahoga County Board of Health also reminded residents about the mask advisory issued earlier in September.
As of Tuesday, 49.99% of Ohioans are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the Ohio Department of Health reported. About 55% of all Cuyahoga County residents have reportedly been fully vaccinated.
