- Community members will not receive any direct payment under this program for making the referral.
- The PA/PTA who referred them will receive $100 for every referral, up to $20,000 (up to 200 people)
- Individuals referred by the PA/PTA are also eligible for the $100 personal incentive program
- More information on personal incentives can be found at nyc.gov/vaccineincentives
