CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - WalMart is not requiring its employees it get vaccinated. But it is encouraging all associates to get vaccinated — and offering those that do $75.

“Do it for your health, your family, your friends, your community, and your country,” the company wrote in a memo to field associates.

The company extended the offer to WalMart, Sam’s Club, and Supply Chain employees below the level of facility manager.

To collect the $75, employees will have to prove they’ve been vaccinated. Starting May 18, the $75 will be added to vaccinated employees’ paychecks.

And those associated who are vaccinated will not have to wear masks at work starting on May 18.
