DeKalb first offered the gift cards in exchange for shots during a food distribution event last weekend. The county said it administered 185 vaccinations that day — a nearly 50% increase over the previous month’s incentive-less event.
As of Tuesday, only about 45% of DeKalb County residents were fully vaccinated.
“With the continued dramatic rise in the number of cases and hospitalizations associated with the COVID-19 Delta variant, time is of the essence,” DeKalb District Health Director, Dr. Sandra J. Valenciano, said in a news release.
“Our community must rally together now to stop COVID-19 and that begins with getting vaccinated, in order to protect everyone, especially our most vulnerable residents and our young children who are not yet eligible for the vaccine.”
