Tom Wolf, the Pennsylvania Governer’s administration announced Monday that they will offer paid leave for five days to employees if they get fully vaccinated against COVID by the end of 2021.
There are approximately more than 70,000 employees who are working for the commonwealth of Pennsylvania who is eligible for this incentive.
The administration stated in an email that Vaccinated employees who have gone through verification will automatically be granted five-day bonus leave and stated that verification leave is eligible for use between Dec.20 and March 31.
Many states have offered different types of initiatives to their people throughout the vaccine rollout, including free bar tickets and lottery drawings.
Last month, Minnesota Gov. Tim Waltz (D) stated that teenagers who are fully vaccinated would be able to receive a visa gift card of $200 through November.
In June, West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice (R) declared that guns would be given out as a vaccine incentive. President Biden has been very supportive of states’ vaccine incentive programs.
