To promote the safety of students and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, Garland ISD is offering a one-time stipend to district employees who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.  Participation is voluntary and based on employees’ personal preferences. We will give:

  • $500 to district employees who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19
  • $250 extra to district employees who receive the COVID-19 booster

The information provided will help the district calculate how many employees are fully vaccinated and facilitate the contact tracing and quarantine processes, which are different depending on vaccination status.  

How to qualify

COVID-19 Initial vaccines

Staff must be employed by Garland ISD on the published payroll date to receive payment. Once proof of vaccination is submitted, the stipend amount(s) will be included in the employee’s regular paycheck. Vaccine stipends will be paid to eligible employees based on date:

  • Accepted submissions on or before October 15, 2021, will be paid in December 2021
  • Accepted submission on or after October 16, 2021 and on or before Dec. 15, will be paid in February 2022

To receive the vaccine stipend, district employees need to complete the stipend forms and submit proof of vaccination (see instructions below). The deadline for the normal vaccine stipend is by December 15, 2021.

Booster shot

Anyone who is initially immunized by December 15, 2021 is eligible for the booster stipend. The deadline for the booster verification has not been determined, as guidance is continuing to evolve from the CDC. If you received a COVID-19 booster vaccination prior to August 2021, you will also need to submit additional proof of the COVID-19 booster.
