Anthem Inc. /zigman2/quotes/203808743/composite ANTM -0.39% said Wednesday it will provide an incentive to any of its employees who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The health insurer said the incentive will be in the form of a one-time credit toward medical premiums or a donation to the Anthem Cares Fund that helps support fellow employees in need, at the employees choice. "Anthem is committed to empowering our associates to live a healthy lifestyle, therefore it was important that we provided an incentive to those who receive the COVID-19 vaccination. I am impressed and grateful for everything our associates have done and continue to do for the customers and communities we serve," said Chief Human Resources Officer Leah Stark. There are currently three COVID-19 vaccines that have been granted emergency use authorization by the Food and Drug Administration, two-dose vaccines from Pfizer Inc. /zigman2/quotes/202877789/composite PFE +1.77% and partner BioNTech SE /zigman2/quotes/214419716/composite BNTX -4.91% and Moderna Inc. /zigman2/quotes/205619834/composite MRNA -11.87% , and Johnson & Johnson's /zigman2/quotes/201724570/composite JNJ +1.38% one-dose vaccine. Anthem's stock, which was indicated down 0.4% in premarket trading, has rallied 9.7% year to date while the S&P 500 /zigman2/quotes/210599714/realtime SPX -1.18% has gained 8.5%. (This replaces an earlier item that removes the dollar amount of the incentive provided by the company, after the company said the amount noted in a previous release resulted from a "publishing mistake.")
