Here’s how the incentive program works:

  • Check in with ReadyHarris.org.
  • The $100 can be claimed regardless of providers, such as pharmacies or doctors.
  • Visit the site to submit a claim for the $100 cash card or virtual card. Those who apply will be asked for their name, email, phone number and the place they received the vaccine.

Officials said if a resident already received a cash incentive through either HCPH or HHD, they would not qualify. A verification team will verify their information through Immtrac and will disqualify anyone that doesn’t meet the requirements.
