Don't Wait. Vaccinate! Incentives Program

 

Students vaccinated against COVID-19 have ten chances to win a prize in the University's "Don't Wait. Vaccinate!" incentives program. The sooner you get vaccinated against COVID-19, the more chances you will have to win. More importantly, the safer our campus community becomes.

How to Get Vaccinated

A COVID-19 testing and vaccination clinic is open on campus for the Fall 2021 semester for University students, faculty and staff members, and the general public. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines will be administered.

The clinic is open from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays in the Burke-Hawthorne Hall auditorium at 231 Hebrard Blvd. Note: The clinic will close at 12 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 27, as staff prepare for the storm known as Ida.

Parking will be available in the E.K. Long parking lot at the corner of East St. Mary Boulevard and Girard Park Circle, and at a few reserved spots outside Burke-Hawthorne Hall.

The clinics will be administered by members of the Louisiana National Guard in partnership with the Louisiana Department of Health and UL Lafayette.

The vaccine is free and you can walk in and register on-site.
