Reminder: Faculty, staff can win prizes by getting COVID-19 vaccine
Kansas State University faculty and staff can win prizes — including Apple Watches, Apple MacBook Pros, K-State Union gift cards and more — by getting the COVID-19 vaccination.
Every week the university draws names of faculty or staff members who meet the following requirements:
- Have been fully vaccinated or have completed their first dose of a two-dose series with the second dose scheduled.
- Have filled out the vaccination incentive program survey.
Weekly prize drawings will continue every Monday through Nov. 22. A list of prizes by level is available on the K-State COVID-19 website.
The fourth weekly drawing occurred on Monday, Oct. 4. The full list of prizes and the winners' units included:
- $50 K-State Student Union gift cards went to employees in the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Health and Human Sciences, the College of Agriculture, the Division of Facilities, the Carl R. Ice College of Engineering and the Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President.
- An Apple Watch went to an employee with K-State Libraries.
K-State also is offering a COVID-19 vaccination incentive program for students.
Vaccination is the best protection against COVID-19. K-State continues to strongly encourage all students, faculty and staff who can receive a COVID-19 vaccine to do so.

No purchase necessary. COVID-19 vaccines are available through Lafene Health Center and other providers at no cost. Faculty and staff members should review the potential side effects and other safety risks associated with receiving a COVID-19 vaccine published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and/or consult with their medical provider when deciding whether to be vaccinated.
