NORTH CAROLINA, USA — Forsyth County Health Department is extending first-dose vaccine $100 cash card incentives through September 13.
The cash card program was supposed to end on August 31, but Forsyth County Health officials said the state has extended the program.
Vaccinations are available at the Forsyth County health department on Wednesday, September 1, next week from September 7-11, and on Monday, September 13.
Anyone 18 and older who gets their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine will receive a $100 prepaid gift card. If you drive someone to their first appointment, you can get a $25 gift card.
Cards will be available while supplies last.
The vaccine cash card incentive was offered at several vaccine sites statewide through the month of August.
Guilford and Forsyth County health departments said they will continue to pass out cash cards into September while supplies last.
It's unclear if the cash cards have made a difference in getting people vaccinated. However, FCDH said it is waiting to hear more from NCDHHS about more incentives in the future.
To make a vaccine appointment with FCDH, call (336) 703-3100.
