I am excited to announce that NDSU will be providing a $100 financial incentive to students who have been fully vaccinated. I have repeatedly indicated that the best way to reduce the impact of COVID-19 and the Delta variant to our community is to have as many people vaccinated as possible. This incentive is designed to do just that.
We are still working out the final details of the program, so please keep an eye out for further information. Here are some key points:
Eligibility: All NDSU undergraduate, graduate, and professional students whether full-time or part-time who are enrolled at NDSU for the Fall 2021 semester are eligible except for the following students who are NOT eligible: (1) benefitted employees who are taking classes; (2) collaborative students whose home campus is another institution within the North Dakota University System; and (3) Tri-College students whose home campus is not NDSU.
Vaccination Status: Must be fully vaccinated (both shots of Pfizer/Moderna or one shot of J&J) by October 15, 2021. Please note that Pfizer/Moderna vaccinations require multiple weeks between the first and second vaccinations which means that you should plan to get your first Pfizer/Moderna vaccination no later September 15.
The funding for this program is coming from the Federal Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund, and NDSU is very appreciative of this support.
NDSU will be offering numerous vaccination clinics where you can get vaccinated for free and become eligible. Information is available at this link: https://www.ndsu.edu/covid19/vaccine_information. Pre-registration is available at the linked site, but walk-ins are also welcome.
In addition, students can receive free vaccinations at Student Health Service by appointment, which can be scheduled by calling 701-231-7331.
Please take advantage of this opportunity to make our community safer and to get paid doing it!
