After submitting proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, about 11,600 Dallas ISD employees received their one-time $500 COVID vaccine incentive in their September paycheck!
Participation in the vaccine incentive is entirely voluntary and based on the employees’ personal preferences.
Another 3,000 employees are expected to receive their vaccine incentive in their October paycheck. These employees who have successfully submitted proof of vaccination will be notified closer to Oct. 15.
The information provided helps the district know how many employees are fully vaccinated and facilitate the contact tracing and quarantine processes, which are different depending on vaccination status.
Employees have until Nov. 15 to submit their proof of vaccination. And since it takes about a month to be fully vaccinated with Pfizer or Moderna, unvaccinated employees interested in the incentive are urged to start the process as soon as possible.
Dallas ISD is partnering with various providers in the community to offer convenient clinics for staff and students 12 and older to receive their first and second doses of the vaccine against COVID-19. Because of visitor limits at campuses during the pandemic, the clinics are mainly for students and staff at that campus unless the clinic takes place in a parking lot or other outside structure.
