NC Offers $100 Cards For First-Time COVID-19 Vaccinations, $25 Cards For Drivers

RALEIGH – As part of its effort to help more North Carolinians protect themselves against COVID-19 and the highly contagious Delta variant, North Carolina is now offering $100 Summer Cards at some vaccine sites across the state to offset the time and transportation costs of getting vaccinated.

From Aug. 4 through Aug. 31, the $100 Summer Cards are available to anyone 18 and older who gets their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine at a participating site—while supplies last.

“Vaccination is how we end this pandemic and put our masks away,” said Governor Roy Cooper. “The Delta variant is highly contagious, and the vast majority of severe cases are among those who are not vaccinated. We are using every tool in the toolbox to get more people to get their shots— don’t wait until it’s too late.”

In addition to providing a $100 Summer Card to those who get their first dose of vaccine, North Carolina continues to offer $25 Summer Cards to those who drive others to their vaccination appointment. They receive a $25 card each time they drive someone to a first dose appointment at the completion of the vaccination. This helps offset the costs for those who help family, friends and neighbors find their spot for a vaccine and drive them to their shots. There is no limit on the amount of times someone can drive people to a vaccination appointment; however, a driver will only receive one card per visit.

“This is an expansion of our successful $25 Summer Card,” said North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Chief Deputy Secretary for Health Kody Kinsley. “It’s a part of the nationwide effort to get more people vaccinated to stop the severe illness, hospitalization and death being caused by the Delta variant which, unfortunately, is now dominant in North Carolina. We know that many people want to get vaccinated but are concerned about taking time off work or can’t afford transportation. The $100 Summer Cards should be a big help.”

More than 61% of North Carolina adults have received at least one dose of the vaccine. However, those who are unvaccinated run a higher risk of severe illness, hospitalization and death from COVID-19 and the Delta variant. They can protect themselves and others by getting fully vaccinated and practicing the 3 Ws until they do.

Those interested in the $100 Summer Card for first-time vaccinations and $25 Summer Card for drivers should call 888-675-4567 or find a participating location here.


  1. Why are they so desperate to get this shot in people that they have to go against Nuremberg code by coercing, enticing and forcing people? Hmmm…. I think by now the ones who want it would have gotten it with the chance at $1M, free donuts, lap dances, coffees, whatever. Those who haven’t aren’t going to because they have done the research and do not feel its worth their life!

  2. So when are the ones who already got their shots going to get $100?? Why are they bribing people to get the vaccine that is proven to be 99.9% effective at preventing death? They should be smart enough to get it without being bribed!!!! Maybe we all should have waited too. This is freaking ridiculous!!!!

    • 😂😂😂😂 – just wait until they admit there was never a good reason to inject yourself with an experimental vaccine other than simple human experimentation. 😂🍿😂🍿😂🍿😂🍿😜

  3. Should of waited, then maybe I could of gotten some money. But then they would of said “ we just gave the last one, sorry”.

  4. Why are tax payers paying a reward for someone making a choice the government wants them to make? We need a financially responsible government, something seems to escape our representatives understanding.

  5. Society’s fail primarily from ignorance, stop this selfishness, think of our children seniors mother’s father’s this pandemic is real. MASK UP WASH HANDS SOCIAL DISTANCE AND GET VACCINATED ARE WE OUR BROTHERS KEEPER OR ARE WE OUT FOR OURSELVES. WHEN OUR CHILDREN START DYING EVERY ADULT THAT DIDN’T DO THEIR DUE DILIGENCE WILL HAVE BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS! M Jones USA retired

    • Being my brother’s keeper does not require me to undergo experimental medical procedures to insure you don’t get a cold.

      As for children dying I think you should pay closer attention to the science you so assiduously adhere to since C19 is a huge nothingburger when it comes to kids. Almost as big a nothingburger as it is to everyone else.

      Stop scaremongering and making this cold into the 2nd coming of the bubonic plague.

  6. Is $100 really worth the government controlling you? Tracking your every step? People they’re are putting the 666 chip inside their bodies is $100 really worth your soul?

    • Just stop with that stupid b***s***!!!! Why are idiots like you still spewing that nonsense?? Sh** like that is one of the reasons there are still so many unvaccinated morons. People just get the freaking shot so the democrats will no longer have something to hold over us and control us!! democRats are the ones who don’t want this sh** to end. Get a grip people!!!!

  7. This is the ultimate “participation trophy” for simply doing the right thing!!! These SNOWFLAKES expect a reward for every/anything. What is WRONG with this country?!?! What’s next, cash prizes for washing your hands after the bathroom? Free money for being unemployed or retired? Tax rebates for having children?

  8. So if I drive myself… I get $125? This is really a low blow to get people in to take the shot. SMDH
    Also if you click to see where this is being done….. No where in Johnston County has a participating location.

  9. They will eventually not allow unvaccinated people in public places.
    This is controll by the government.
    Is this the beginning of later days according to the Bible?
    The Card being issued for the shots is a form of the mark.

  10. People please recognize this for exactly what it is. It’s a scare tactic to make people rush to get an experimental shot. Isn’t it amazing how one day we were at the lowest cases ever in recorded Covid and the very next day it was a rECORD of infected people. SMH. No not today Satan! If it makes you feel better to be vaccinated then by all means do it. I know how to practice good hygiene to keep myself safe. I remember the Hong Kong Flu, Bird Flu and Swine Flu. Why is everyone in such a panic. Better go by you some paper products…The shortage is coming.
