Harris County’s $100 1st Dose Virtual Cash Card Incentive Info

On August 17th, Judge Lina Hidalgo and Harris County Public Health launched a new vaccination incentive program which gives $100 cash cards to residents who receive their 1st COVID-19 vaccination dose at a HCPH. The program has now been extended till September 30th.

Due to the success of the program and rise in vaccination rates across Harris County, we are happy to announce that all Harris County residents who receive their first dose between August 26th and September 30th are eligible for the incentive program regardless of where they received their 1st dose vaccination in Harris County!


Incentive Program FAQ

What are the eligibility requirements?

All you have to do is sign up and fill out the incentive form. HCPH will verify your vaccination status and address provided in the form. The only eligibility requirements are:

  • Received your 1st dose of the COVID-19 vaccine between August 26-September 30th
  • Get your shot from a provider in Harris County
  • Resident of Harris County

*If you do not meet the criteria for both requirements you will not receive a $100 cash card

Do I qualify even if I didn’t get my 1st dose through HCPH?

Yes! Regardless of where you received your 1st dose vaccination (CVS, Walgreens, Primary Care Provider, etc), as long as you can prove you’re a Harris County resident and we are able to verify your 1st dose of the COVID-19 occurred between the dates of eligibility, you will receive a $100 virtual cash card.

How long will it take for me to get my $100 cash card?

The $100 cash card will be sent via email or text message within 1-3 business days from HCPH’s verification. The verification process may take a few days to several weeks depending on the number of applicants. The virtual cash card can be used immediately.

If I already received the cash incentive through Houston Health Department, will I be eligible for the Harris County incentive?

No. If you have already received the Houston Health Department’s incentive, you do not qualify for the HCPH’s $100 virtual cash card incentive. We verify everyone’s vaccine provider during our verification process and remove individuals who have already received cash cards through HCPH and HHD.

Do I have to be a Harris County resident to receive the $100?

Yes. If you are not a Harris County resident, you will not qualify for the program.

Who can I contact for more questions or information?
