September 21 – Public Health – Dayton and Montgomery County will issue $ 100 gift cards to people receiving their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at five clinics this week.
Clinics are scheduled for: – Tuesday, 2 p.m. to 6 p.m .: Dayton Metro Library Huber Heights, 6160 Chambersburg Road, Huber Heights – Wednesday, 8 a.m. to noon: Reibold Building, 117 S. Main St., Dayton (free parking available in Reibold Garage) – Thursday, noon-4 p.m .: Montgomery County Fairgrounds, 645 Infirmary Road, Jefferson Twp. – Friday, 8 am-12pm: Northwest Recreation Center, 1600 Princeton Drive, Dayton – Saturday 10 am-2pm: Sugarcreek Packing, 900 N. Gettysburg, Dayton
Those who get vaccinated must bring a valid photo ID to allow public health to verify what dose they are receiving in their system.
$ 100 gift cards will be available while supplies last.
This is the second week that Public Health is distributing gift cards to encourage people to get vaccinated. More than 200 people lined up at a vaccination clinic in Huber Heights last week.
“The idea behind the gift cards is to get people to get vaccinated, but to get vaccinated quickly and as soon as possible, because we are seeing the number of cases increasing at an uncontrollable rate,” the carrier said. Public Health Dan Suffoletto spoke last week. “We had great enthusiasm here and it reminds us a bit of the start of the pandemic in January when we saw huge queues before we even opened.”
Public Health used a grant from the Ohio Department of Health to obtain 1,000 gift cards to give to people receiving their first dose of the vaccine. Other gift cards should also be available.
