John A. Logan offering $200 to fully vaccinated students


CARTERVILLE (WSIL) -- Fully vaccinated John A. Logan students can receive a financial bonus for getting the vaccine.

Gov. JB Pritzker recently announced a mandate requiring all higher education students be vaccinated or submit to weekly testing.

According to Vice President for Business Services Stacy Buckingham, Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds administered by the U.S. Department of Treasury can be used to pay for a vaccine incentive program.

“We began planning to offer this program from the Higher Education Relief Funds early in the semester as an option to encourage our students to get vaccinated against COVID19,” said Buckingham. “Because this is a public health emergency, we are allowed to use a portion of these funds for this program.”

Buckingham added that any John A. Logan College currently enrolled in three credit hours for the fall 2021 term can complete a form and provide proof of full COVID vaccination in the Library. Students can elect for the funds to be applied to their student account, distributed via direct deposit, on a reloadable debit card, or by check. The deadline to submit information is Friday, November 19, 2021.

Vaccine Incentive Program forms will be available, and photo IDs will be taken in the John A. Logan College Library on Tuesday, September 14, from 10 AM to 2 PM and 4:30 PM to 7 PM. As well as Wednesday, September 15, from 9 AM to 2:00 PM and Thursday, September 16, from 12 PM to 4:30 PM.
