A Texas hospital in Houston is offering a $500 bonus to workers if they get a COVID-19 vaccine.

Houston Methodist employees are eligible for a “Hope Bonus” in March to thank them for their work last year, Marc Boom, president and CEO of Houston Methodist, wrote in an email to staff last week.

“Eligibility criteria will include getting a COVID-19 vaccination, fulfilling our obligation as health care workers to lead the community,” Boom wrote.

Boom noted that the Covid-19 vaccine is not mandated for employees right now, but will be eventually.
