The city of Beech Grove on Tuesday announced it would pay full- and part-time city employees $50 each to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

The incentive program could affect up to 100 employees, the city said.

“As we face down this current phase of the pandemic, it is imperative all of us who are eligible get vaccinated to protect the health and safety of our community, particularly our children and our neighbors who are immunocompromised,” said Mayor Dennis Buckley in written remarks. “We are fighting an invisible enemy, and because many of our employees are on the front lines of keeping our community healthy and safe, we need to do our part to defeat this virus.”

The city also plans to offer free flu shots to full and part-time employees. It said employees will have an additional opportunity to earn gift cards to local Main Street businesses if they participate in wellness and preventive care initiatives.
