University renews #IGotTheVax vaccine campaign, offers incentives

The university is celebrating students, faculty and staff who have chosen to get vaccinated, which is the best way to help #ProtectTexasTogether. If you are a current staff member who has received at least one dose of a U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized or World Health Organization authorized COVID-19 vaccine, you are eligible to enter a drawing to win great prizes, including cash prizes of up to $500, popular items like coolers and tumblers, and one-of-a-kind UT experiences such as getting to take a selfie with Bevo on field or touring the new Moody Center with Athletic Director Chris Del Conte. Drawings began taking place on Sept. 3, and will continue weekly through Oct. 8. Learn more and enter on the Protect Texas Together website.

In addition, the university recently launched a renewed strategy for the #IGotTheVax COVID-19 vaccination campaign, originally launched in early 2021. Share information and materials from the campaign toolkit in your units and amplify social media. The toolkit offers posters, digital screens and social media graphics. Buttons and stickers are also available at pop-up vaccination clinics as well as other distribution points on campus.
