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.

If you have not yet received your vaccine, find a provider near you. You can also call the state's vaccine hotline at 1-855-453-0774.

Learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine and read FAQs on the Louisiana Department of Health website.


To participate, a student must:

  • have received the Johnson & Johnson one-dose COVID-19 vaccine or two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines before the date of the drawing;
  • provide proof of vaccination if you received the vaccine outside the state of Louisiana;
  • be registered for classes for the Fall 2021 semester; and
  • register for the contest via the entry form.

Be advised that the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine doses are administered 21 days apart, and the Moderna vaccine doses are administered 28 days apart.

Drawing Entry

Participating students must complete and submit the entry form.

Students who were vaccinated in another state or country will need to upload proof of vaccination to the Student Health Services patient portal.
