COVID-19 Vaccine

The State of Ohio is offering a monetary incentive for State of Ohio employees and spouses who have received at least the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination. All State of Ohio employees and their spouses are encouraged to protect themselves, their families, and their communities by getting a COVID-19 vaccination. State employees and their spouses can receive a COVID-19 vaccination at no cost.

How State employees and spouses can be rewarded 

$100 — State employees (including spouses who are also State of Ohio employees) can earn $100 by getting a COVID-19 vaccine (at least one dose) and submitting the COVID-19 Vaccine Attestation Form and a copy of the Vaccination Record Card by Tuesday, Nov. 30, 2021

  • Spouses who are not State employees can earn $25 for getting a COVID-19 vaccine (at least one dose) and submitting the COVID-19 Vaccine Attestation Form and a copy of the Vaccination Record Card by Tuesday, Nov. 30, 2021

NEW:  Bonus rewards for State employees — Up to $1,000!

In addition to receiving $100 for getting a vaccine, State employees could get an additional $300 and/or $600 if their agency meets the following thresholds. 

  • Additional $300 — If 65% of an agency’s active employees are vaccinated (at least the first dose) and forms are submitted by Friday, Oct. 15, 2021
  • Additional $600 — If 85% of an agency’s active employees are vaccinated (at least the first dose) and forms are submitted by Monday, Nov. 15, 2021

When you can anticipate receiving your reward

Nov. 19 Paycheck — If you get a vaccine (at least the first dose) and submit your COVID-19 Attestation Form and proof by Oct. 15 and your agency reaches the goal of 65% vaccinated active employees by Oct. 15, you will receive the additional $300 in your Nov. 19 paycheck.

Dec. 17 Paycheck — If you get a vaccine (at least the first dose) and submit your COVID-19 Attestation Form and proof by Nov. 15 and your agency reaches the goal of 85% vaccinated active employees by Nov. 15, you will receive the additional $600 in your Dec. 17 paycheck — yes, just in time for the holidays.

You may be permitted to take up to two hours of paid leave for the flu vaccine and the COVID-19 vaccine(s) beginning Monday, Sept. 27. Please check with your agency to determine whether this leave is available to you.

If you are unable to receive the vaccine required to earn an incentive, you may be entitled to a reasonable accommodation. You may request a reasonable accommodation by contacting DAS Employee Benefits Management Team at 1-800-409-1205, option 2.
