The vaccination for COVID-19 is rolling out faster than ever before. With the number of people getting vaccinated in the United States, we are seeing number of COVID-19 cases drop which is a huge sigh of relief for everyone. However, not everyone is open to getting vaccinated, so businesses have to start getting creative.
Over the past few months, more and more businesses are open to the idea of paying their employees to get the vaccine. For just an extra $100 – and, at some places, more – you just need to get vaccinated and continue doing the job you love. Let’s be real… that’s a nice trade. Making extra money and getting the country one step closer to normality? That’s a win, win situation.
Certain places of employment make getting the vaccine as easy as driving to work like the airport or pharmacies. Because there are vaccination sites easily at their disposal, it takes less convincing to get those employees to take the vaccine. However, that isn’t stopping them from asking for a little extra dough.
Alongside airports and pharmacies, we are seeing food industries and plants convincing their employees to get the vaccine. Tyson Foods, the world’s second largest processor of chicken, beef, and pork, have hosted 80 vaccination events on their campuses, making the vaccine more accessible for their employees. That effort combined with the extra pay to get vaccinated, a third of Tyson Foods employees have now been fully vaccinated with more people adding to that list.
I’m going to be honest… If I didn’t already get the vaccine, I would have taken whatever these businesses are offering.
