COVID-19 vaccine

The State of Ohio is offering a monetary incentive for all State of Ohio employees and spouses who have received or who will receive 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, and those who received a COVID-19 vaccination prior to August 2, 2021, are eligible for the incentive payment.

You and your spouse can receive one of the following monetary incentives after receiving at least the first dose of the vaccination:

  • State employee: $100
  • Spouse: $25 - A spouse could be either:
    • Spouse of State employee
    • State employee enrolled as a spouse in the State of Ohio medical plan

Incentive dollars earned by the State employee and his or her spouse will be reflected on the State employee's paycheck after the completed activity has been processed. After submitting your form, allow 4-6 weeks for your incentive payment to be processed and reflected on the employee’s paycheck. Incentives for employees enrolled as a spouse in the State’s medical plan will be added to the paycheck of the employee. Monetary incentives are taxable and taxes are based on the amount of the incentive.

Employees may be permitted to take up to two hours leave during regularly scheduled work hours to receive the two-dose COVID-19 vaccination or up to one hour of leave for those who receive the single dose vaccination. 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.
