NORMAN, Okla. (KFOR) – The University of Oklahoma is launching two new programs to thank students who are already vaccinated, and incentivize students who are still unvaccinated as COVID-19 cases continue to rise ahead of the Fall 2021 semester.

“The sooner students participate in the programs, the more chances they have to be randomly selected in #OUVaccinates drawings, the more money there is to win, and the safer they will make our campus and communities.”

OU students have two ways to win:

  1. #OUVaccinates Vaccination Contest
  2. #OUVaccinates Instagram Challenge(s)

Vaccination Contest

Students can visit the OU Together page and fill out a vaccination form with proof of vaccination to win.

Any student who wins a Vaccination Contest drawing will be required to provide proof of full vaccination, coordinate full vaccination, or supporting exemption documents before scholarships/prizes can be received.

#OUVaccinates Instagram Challenge(s)

The @OUHealthServices Instagram account will share #OUVaccinates posts on August 16 and 30, and September 13. Students who share, tag, and comment on each new post will be entered each time for a total of up to three entries.

The university strongly encourages the entire OU community to get vaccinated, particularly those living in congregate housing. COVID-19 vaccines are available to all students, faculty, and staff on all three OU campuses at no cost to the individual. Masking is also highly encouraged when indoors and/or in large groups of people.

The #OUVaccinates Program will also host vaccine clinic events, and share t-shirts, posters, and buttons to anyone in the campus community.

Students who are unvaccinated are encouraged to visit OU Health Services at Goddard Health Center or the OU-Tulsa Internal Medicine clinic for their no-cost inoculation.
