What Happened to My Boost Oneida County Gift Card Incentive
What happened to the $100 Boost Oneida County incentive? If you haven't received your $100 gift card incentive for getting a booster shot with the Boost Oneida County program, just be patient. It's coming.
The Boost Oneida County vaccination incentive program ended on December 31. Anyone vaccinated after that date would not receive a $100 gift card incentive. However, anyone who received a vaccine or booster between July 15 and December 31 would still be eligible, according to OCGov.net.
Boost OC is funded through $2.5 million from the federal American Rescue Act. E-gift cards will be available until that allotment is depleted.
