PORT ARTHUR, Texas — Port Arthur Independent School District is giving its employees 100 reasons to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
The district announced Friday that they are now offering a $100 bonus to fully vaccinated employees with an authentic COVID-19 vaccination card.
Eligible employees are expected to show authorized personnel on their campus an original vaccination card with proof of their first and second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Port Arthur ISD outlined a timeline to explain when employees would receive the bonus.
Employees who submit their proof of COVID-19 vaccination on Sept. 15 can expect their $100 “appreciation incentive” by Sept. 30. Those who submit their records on Sept. 30 can expect a disbursement on Oct. 15.
Employees who are in a waiting period to receive the vaccine due to a positive test result will be able to submit their records on Jan. 4, 2022, and will receive their bonus on Jan. 15, 2022, according to the district.
