October 18, 2021 – In September, Santa Fe College announced a voluntary COVID-19 vaccine incentive program. Different processes are in place for students and employees to verify their status. Visit sfcollege.edu/covid19/incentive for updates. Free vaccines are available at local pharmacies, Publix, and the local Health Department; vaccine events are also held periodically at Santa Fe College.
Students can begin reporting their vaccination status Monday, Nov. 1. Current SF students can get a one-time non-recurring $60 if they have had their full allotment of COVID-19 vaccine (two shots of Pfizer or Moderna or one shot of Johnson & Johnson) by October 31.
During the week of November 1 – 5 only, eligible students who wish to participate can use a Zoom room or in-person on the Northwest Campus or any SF center to have their vaccination status verified in person Complete details are available on the This Week@SF, or on the COVID-19 Vaccine Incentive webpage. Faculty should encourage students to report their vaccination status if they wish to receive the payment.
Once vaccination status is confirmed, students will receive a one-time, non-recurring payment of $60 through BankMobile, their payment method preference set up on eSantaFe. Payments will be viewable on students’ My FA Status by November 30, 2021. If students don’t have a BankMobile account, they will receive a check in the mail. Checks will be sent after November 30. In addition, all those who receive the financial incentive will be eligible to receive additional rewards through a random drawing. Participating students will be entered to have an opportunity to receive a $250 bookstore voucher as well as a designated parking spot for the Spring 2022 semester.
SF employees can get a one-time non-recurring $60 (less taxes) if they have had their full allotment of COVID-19 vaccine (two shots of Pfizer or Moderna or one shot of Johnson & Johnson) by October 31. Beginning today, SF employees who are vaccinated may contact Human Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an in-person or virtual (Teams or Zoom) appointment to verify vaccination (you must present your vaccine card or paper for viewing). November 5 is the final deadline for verification.
Upon confirmation, employees will receive the $60 incentive, less any applicable taxes, in their November 30 payroll. As part of a random drawing, verified employees will also be eligible to receive a designated parking spot for the Spring 2022 semester at any of the college’s locations, including Lot 1 and 1A on the Northwest Campus, or a spot closer to their assigned building if preferred.
