EUGENE, Ore. — Lane Community College says students and staff must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before arriving on campus September 27 for fall term.
LCC stepped up the push this week by announcing that 300 fully vaccinated students will receive $500 prizes for their effort.
The money is part of a $150,000 lottery funded by the federal Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund.
“It’s all-hands-on-deck time,” LCC President Margaret Hamilton said. “As a community, we need to get out the message that vaccinations are safe and effective. They save lives and will help turn this pandemic around.”
According to LCC:
The vaccine lottery is open to all credit and non-credit students. No application is needed. Winners will be drawn at random from registered students who upload proof of vaccination.
