Phoenix Union offers financial incentives for vaccinated students, employees

“Our goal through Vax to the Max … is to not just hit 85%, but is to keep you in school, keep you learning, keep clubs and sports and activities going, not just this quarter but throughout the year,” Superintendent Chad Gestson said in a video posted Friday. District officials said the goals were set at 85% because that’s the typical level of herd immunity in a pandemic. The district said it’s paying for the program with federal stimulus money and not using state or local tax funds.

For students, everyone who submits proof of full vaccination by Oct. 11 will get a $100 gift card. The student campaign also includes schoolwide prizes for the first large and small campuses to hit 85%. In addition, the staff at the district’s first large and small schools to hit 85% will receive a prize.

Most of the gift cards will be for Target, and some will be from local grocery stories. Under the program, all staff have until Oct. 11 to report their vaccination status. If the full district reaches a vaccination rate of 85%, each vaccinated employee will get a paycheck bonus of $200.

Follow @ktar923 Details about the free testing and vaccine programs are available at the district’s website.

The district is also offering free on-site and at-home COVID-19 testing opportunities for staff, students and the community as well Saturday vaccination clinics at select schools. Phoenix Union has been aggressive with its COVID-19 mitigation efforts. It was the first district to defy the wishes of Gov. Doug Ducey and the state Legislature and implement a mask mandate.
