The person you refer must live in Contra Costa County.
As Bay Area counties continue to battle the delta variant, incentive programs are getting more and more creative. Contra Costa County, which is a Bay Area county about an hour outside of San Francisco, has launched the Helping Hands Referral Program, which awards $100 to people who convince their friends, family, or coworkers to get vaccinated.
To qualify, the person you refer must live in Contra Costa County. They must make an appointment using your unique referral link and get fully vaccinated ($100 for one dose of Johnson & Johnson, or $50 for each dose of Pfizer or Moderna).
The program is available for individuals over 14 years old, as well as community groups, sports teams, clubs, non-profits, businesses, and more. It can be used as a fundraiser for your nonprofit, employers can sign up their employees and customers, and so on. There’s no limit to the amount of people you can register, but if you make over $600 you’ll have to complete a W-9 because it qualifies as taxable income.
As long as the person you refer is not already vaccinated, or ineligible to be vaccinated (under 12 years old), you are on your way to making 100 bucks!
Sign up with this form to receive your referral link. Make sure the person you refer uses the link to make their appointment.
The program is funded with money from the Contra Costa Regional Health Foundation, which is donor-funded. Keep in mind that funds are limited, so it’s good to sign up sooner rather than later!
