Houston Will Pay $100 to Anyone Receiving First Covid Vaccine Dose

Aug 17 (Reuters) – Anybody who receives the first dose of a COVID vaccine before the end of August in the county that encompasses Houston will receive $100, the county’s top elected official said on Tuesday.

Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo said the measure was needed to boost vaccination rates in an effort to combat a fourth COVID surge ignited by the Delta variant. Houston’s hospitals on Tuesday reported they had more COVID patients now than at any point before in the pandemic.
