"A one-time $100 vaccine payment will be offered to all employees who receive full doses of the COVID-19 vaccine recommended by the manufacturer and provide appropriate proof of vaccination to a human resources representative," the company said in a statement. 

Employees who cannot receive the vaccine for medical or religious reasons will have the opportunity to take a health and safety education course to receive payment.

The company will also spend an additional $50 million on rewards for its employees, including a $100 store credit and 1,000 fuel points.
