Columbus Public Health to Offer $100 Vax Cash Card at 10 New Neighborhood Satellite Vaccine Clinics

Columbus Public Health to Offer $100 Vax Cash Card at 10 New Neighborhood Satellite Vaccine Clinics

July 6, 2021

Beginning today, Columbus Public Health will give $100 Visa cash cards to Franklin County residents getting their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at 10 new neighborhood satellite clinics. No appointment is needed. 

Vax cash will be offered from noon-7 p.m. while supplies last between July 6 and August 16:

Mondays:            Linden Community Center (1350 Briarwood Ave.)

William H. Adams Community Center (854 Alton Ave.)

Tuesdays:            Far East Community Center (1826 Lattimer Dr.)

Ethiopian Tewahedo Social Services (4099 Karl Rd.)

Wednesdays:    Barack Community Center (580 E. Woodrow Ave.)

Somali Community Association of Ohio (3422 Cleveland Ave.)

Thursdays:          Sullivant Gardens Community Center (755 Renick St.)

Bhutanese Community of Central Ohio (4646 Tamarack Blvd.)

Fridays:                Westgate Community Center (455 S. Westgate Ave.)

St. Stephen the Martyr Church (4131 Clime Rd.)

Vax cash will also be offered to residents getting their first dose at the Columbus Public Health walk-in clinic at 240 Parsons Ave. The clinic is open from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday. 

“Only 51% of people in Franklin County have received one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and the rate is even lower for people of color who are at greater risk of hospitalization and death, especially with the emergence of the Delta variant” said Health Commissioner Dr. Mysheika Roberts. “While our new satellite clinics will remove barriers to vaccination, we hope that the vax cash will give residents a little extra incentive to roll up their sleeves and get the vaccine to protect themselves and others.”

“It is important that these clinics are being offered in communities where the need is greatest to ensure that all residents have an opportunity to get vaccinated – access is key to ending this pandemic,” said Councilmember Tyson.  “The incentive is an innovative solution that supports public health and can ultimately increase our vaccination rates getting us closer to herd immunity.”
