Scarlet Pearl offering extra cash to employees who receive COVID-19 vaccine

The Scarlett Pearl Casino Resort is offering extra cash to each employee who receives the COVID vaccination.

Scarlet Pearl has teamed up with Memorial Hospital to administer vaccinations to their employees.

Scarlet Pearl received 100 Johnson and Johnson vaccines and they were distributed this morning to employees. Next Friday, the Moderna vaccine will be administered.

Scarlet Pearl CEO LuAnn Pappas breaks down the payout. “Johnson and Johnson is a one shot. So, it’s $150 in cash. We actually have a bank over there and they immediately get paid when they get shot. Then the two shot which is the Moderna, it’s still $150 per shot for a total of $300 in cash, given after each and every shot in cash.”

After the staff is vaccinated, the opportunity to be vaccinated will be extended to their family members.
