The gift cards are only available to those receiving their first dose of the vaccine.
“Vaccination is the single most important thing you can do to protect yourself and your loved ones from severe illness, hospitalization or death from COVID-19,” said Health Commissioner Jeff Cooper. “The incentive is being offered to help motivate the unvaccinated to receive the vaccine as quickly as possible to reduce the recent surge of severe illness and hospitalization.”
As of Tuesday, 50.94% of Montgomery County residents have received at least one dose of the vaccine, according to ODH. Statewide, 52.96% of residents have started the vaccine series. The county saw an increase of 412 people start the vaccine in the last day. It’s more than double the 184-person increase in vaccination starts ODH reported for Montgomery County on Monday.
