NYC Vaccine Referral Bonus Program

The 'NYC Vaccine Referral Bonus' program incentivizes community- and faith-based organizations to encourage members of their neighborhoods to get vaccinated by awarding $100 for each referral that leads to an individual receiving their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at a City-run site. When an individual makes an appointment ahead of time or as a walkup, they will be able to choose which community organization referred them to get vaccinated. Once they receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, the referral organization will be credited $100. Organizations can earn up to $20,000 each and payments will be made after the conclusion of the program. Interested organizations can sign-up through nyc.gov/vaccinereferralbonus.
