Some employees in the state of New York are entitled to a bonus directly related to COVID-19.
New York City employees that got the vaccine are able to get $100 through New York City’s vaccination program.
Mayor Bill de Blasio announced in Oct. that part of the vaccine mandate for New York City employees includes a $500 bonus.
Anyone that had their first dose by Oct. 29 is eligible for that bonus.
There are opportunities for those that aren’t city employees as well.
What other bonuses are there directly related to COVID-19?
The City itself created a program for anyone who got their vaccine at a city run clinic or location. Those people can get a $100 pre-paid debit gift card.
Instead of that debit card, people can choose other things like sports tickets, passes for the ferry, a Citibike membership for two weeks, and other things.
After getting the vaccine, the clinic will inform you on how to claim your $100 pre-paid debit card.
