Tulane University Offers Faculty and Staff $500 Bonuses to Get COVID Vaccine

“Full-time faculty and staff members who report that they have been vaccinated can receive a one-time payment of $500. Part-time employees can receive $250. “

Students at the school are being required to get the vaccine but employees are getting paid for it.

WWL News reports:

Tulane offers $500 payments for employees to get COVID-19 vaccine

Tulane University will offer faculty and staff up to $500 in a one-time payment to those who report that they have been fully vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine.

In a letter to the university community, Tulane University President Michael A. Fitts and other leaders said that currently, 66 percent of faculty and staff have reported their COVID-19 vaccination. Full-time faculty and staff members who report that they have been vaccinated can receive a one-time payment of $500. Part-time employees can receive $250.

The university is pushing to increase that rate to 90 percent by July 31 by offering “a special university celebration with multiple prize drawings” if it reaches the goal.

“This is an exciting time at Tulane, filled with much hope and anticipation that we will soon be able to return to life as it was before COVID-19,” the letter said.

Tulane is allowing employees to get vaccinated during work hours and they are also eligible to take COVID-19 leave if they experience symptoms after getting the shots.

“Please help us do this – for yourself, your family, friends and colleagues, and for New Orleans,” the letter ends.

Earlier this month, Tulane announced it will require that all students get the COVID-19 vaccine next semester. Students must submit proof of vaccination by July 15. They could also fill out a “vaccine declination form” if they can not get the vaccine due to medical or religious reasons.

Wow. This gives an indication that NOT many have gotten the vaccine so far.

We’ll see if this bribery works.

If the kids are smart, they’ll hold out. Bounties like this inevitably get bigger.

Here’s the good news, folks – you don’t have to get a shot to go back to pre-“covid” life… JUST DO IT. Drop the silly masks, get rid of the pointless “social distancing,” skip all the O/C germaphobic sanitation craziness, and just live life like normal.

You don’t need the Old Perv’s or the Ho’s permission. Just do it.
