Listen

Employees at Niagara Falls (N.Y.) Memorial Medical Center who are vaccinated against COVID-19 have the opportunity to win a prize, according to WGRZ.

The hospital will hold a prize drawing Feb. 15, in which vaccinated workers will be able to win one of four prizes, Alexander Collichio, vice president of human resources, told the news station. The prizes are reportedly a Kate Spade wallet, Canisius College season tickets, a gift certificate to a local spa and a gift certificate package to DiCamillo's bakery.

"NFMMC is committed to encouraging all of our employees and the community to receive a vaccination in order to bring the COVID pandemic that has defined the last year of our lives to an end," Mr. Collichio emailed WGRZ.

"Although the COVID vaccination is not mandatory for employees, NFMMC has strongly encouraged employees to receive this vaccine to assist with reduction of COVID infections and mitigate any contagion," he said.

Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center, a 171-bed regional medical center, offers inpatient and outpatient services at its Niagara Falls campus and at facilities in Niagara County. As of Feb. 1, the hospital said it has administered the COVID-19 vaccine  to more than 3,500 people, including 680 employees.
