COVID-19 Vaccine

UPDATE: COVID-19 vaccine $600 incentive has been extended through Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2022

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.

Bonus reward for State employees

State employees could get an additional $600 if their agency meets the following thresholds if 85% of an agency’s active employees are vaccinated (at least the first dose) and forms are submitted by Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2022.

When you can anticipate receiving your reward(s)

Nov. 19 Paycheck — For those employees whose agency reached the Oct. 15 threshold, you will see your reward in your Nov. 19 paycheck.

Dec. 17 Paycheck — If you got a vaccine (at least the first dose) and submitted your COVID-19 Attestation Form and proof by Nov. 15 and your agency reached the goal of 85% vaccinated active employees by Nov. 15, you will receive the additional $600 in your Dec. 17 paycheck.

You may be permitted to take up to two hours of paid leave for the flu vaccine and the COVID-19 vaccine(s). 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.
