Earlier this month, 50 members of Purdue’s faculty and staff were notified that they had won a prize for choosing to get the COVID-19 vaccine and uploading their documentation. The employees were randomly drawn from a pool of employees who had uploaded their COVID-19 vaccine documentation by August 13.   Read more about the winners and their prizes.

Campus vaccination rates have climbed to 85% in recent weeks while the COVID-19 positivity rate remains low. The latest data is available on the Protect Purdue Dashboard. The Protect Purdue Health team continues to encourage faculty, staff, and students to get vaccinated and submit their vaccination status.
