Community colleges offering cash incentives to vaccinated students

As usual, local community colleges are providing strong leadership to Central Valley students and the cities they serve. West Hills Community College District and Fresno City College are offering students $250 to get vaccinated. FCC is even throwing in a free textbook to sweeten the deal.

Reedley College is offering a free meal from the cafeteria for students who receive their first dose. For their second dose students receive a free textbook.

Clovis Community College is offering a similar program to Fresno City College. Clovis Community will offer $150 gift cards to the bookstore for fully vaccinated students. While details are being finalized, students will get an email in the coming days about how to snag the gift cards.

Madera Community College will also offer a vaccination clinic next Wednesday, Aug. 18 from 10:30 to 1:30 p.m., offering students who get vaccinated a $150 Amazon gift card. They must show proof of vaccination by Sept. 15. If they refer a family member or friend, both parties will receive a $25 gift card.
