Grocery chain Lidl is paying its employees to get vaccinated against the coronavirus.

The German company announced it will give its employees $200 to help cover the costs associated with getting the vaccine. Lidl also announced it will work with its employees’ schedules so they will be guaranteed the time off for their appointment. \

The move was made by the company after an internal survey showed 8-in-10 employees wanted the vaccine.

Other companies such as competitors Aldi and Dollar General have announced similar compensation. Aldi also announced Tuesday that it would have on-site vaccination clinics for workers.

What other companies will follow suit? We’ll see.
