Vaccinated students at UW-Stout remain eligible through Friday, Oct. 15 for Blue Devil gear, gift certificates from local businesses and more. Prizes are being awarded daily.
Because UW-Stout students have reached 70%, the student government organization, Stout Student Association, is eligible to receive up to $5,000 from the UW System.
With the Oct. 31 System deadline for scholarship eligibility, students still have time to get vaccinated and upload their information. Free vaccination clinics will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 1, on the lawn south of the Memorial Student Center; and from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 13, at Student Health Services. Learn more at the webpage.
The UW System does not require students to be vaccinated. The 70% threshold was chosen based on estimates about the percentage of the population needed to reach herd immunity, which represents those who are vaccinated or who already had the virus and indicates a minimal level of communitywide protection.
