The giveaway includes a chance to win a variety of prizes, including Barnes & Noble and Starbucks gift cards, parking permits, vacation hours, and $2,500 for two student winners, according to the university.

Students, faculty, and staff are asked to upload an image of their federal COVID-19 vaccination card on Med+Proctor, a secure medical third-party website.

The university says the deadline to enter to win prizes is 11:59 p.m. on November 22, 2021. 

Giveaway drawings will occur on December 1, 2021, and presumptive winners will be notified within one week of the drawing.

Collecting data on the vaccination status of faculty, staff, and students will help the university and the COVID-19 Task Force make informed decisions about public health practices and policies,” the university said.

The university also says it plans to set up a COVID-19 vaccination and testing site on its Dayton Campus in the coming weeks.
