Safe & Healthy Rams Vaccination Incentive Program

 

Safe & Healthy Rams Vaccination Incentive Program

The purpose of the program is to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 by increasing vaccination rates. Vaccines are one of the strongest tools we have to control and prevent infectious diseases. The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective, and free. Vaccinations are the best intervention we have for reliable protection for our entire community.

With the Safe & Healthy Rams Vaccination Incentive Program, full-time students enrolled at Huston-Tillotson University in the fall 2021 semester who get fully vaccinated against COVID-19 at any approved location (on or off-campus) are eligible to be entered into a drawing for prizes.

Prizes include

  • Fully and partial tuition for Spring and Summer 2022
  • $250 cash awards
  • Additional prizes coming soon!

 

Submit your vaccination record to vaccinations@htu.edu by 11:59 pm on Thursday, September 30, 2021 to be eligible.

 

The COVID-19 vaccination is free for everyone! For a list of vaccination sites, visit the Austin Public Healthy COVID-19 Vaccine site or vaccines.gov. COVID-19 vaccines are also available at many local grocery stores and pharmacies.
