Last week, Florida saw the highest surge of new COVID-19 cases since summer 2020. The Florida Department of Health reported over 45,000 new cases of COVID-19 from July 9 – July 15, an average of 6,500+ new infections daily. 

Those who have not been vaccinated are encouraged to get their vaccine as soon as possible to protect themselves and others. Vaccines are widely available in Daytona Beach. 

Not vaccinated yet? There will be three community vaccination clinics where a $25 Walmart gift card* will be given to all Volusia County residents who gets vaccinated at the clinic. Family Health Source will supply and administer Moderna vaccines. The gift card incentive is part of Mayor Derrick Henry’s initiative to encourage reluctant residents to get vaccinated, and the cost of the gift cards is provided by Jon Hall Chevrolet and Brown & Brown Insurance. 

“When COVID vaccines were first introduced, we saw a lot of people eager to protect their health, but now we are seeing people on the fence, and we want to incentivize those people to get vaccinated,” said Mayor Henry.
