ONEIDA, Wis. (AP) — Two American Indian tribes in northeastern Wisconsin will put cash in the pockets of its members and employees to get a coronavirus vaccination.
Both the Oneida and Menominee tribes are offering a $500 incentive for vaccinations. That includes those who have already been inoculated.
For the Menominee Nation, members age 12 and older as well as tribal employees who are fully vaccinated on or before Oct. 31 are eligible to receive the incentive.
Oneida tribal members and employees have until Sept. 30 to show proof of their vaccination to receive the $500.
Oneida and Menominee tribes aren’t the only ones thinking of clever ways to encourage vaccinations. JBS Green Bay rewarded those who got vaccinated at its August 18 vaccine clinic a variety of free and delicious meat with one lucky individual receiving a year’s supply of meat.
Meijer stores also announced in early August they are offering college students a $10 coupon off any purchase when they complete the vaccination series at their pharmacy. This deal lasts until September 30.
