Get Vaccinated, Win Prizes!

Want to Win Free Tuition or Other Exciting Prizes? Get Registered!

Take the winning shot! By getting the COVID-19 vaccination and letting us know you got vaccinated, you could be eligible to win free tuition for a semester, an Apple Watch or many other awesome prizes.

Beginning Aug. 2, all Kent State students who are vaccinated and register their vaccine information on the University Health Services website, will be eligible to win prizes in twice-weekly drawings. Students who registered previously are also eligible to win prizes. Drawings will go through Oct. 12.

So that means you could win free tuition for a semester, free room and board for a semester or a kayaking trip with you and your closest friends. Other prizes to be awarded include free Homecoming concert tickets, Beats headphones and Apple watches. 

How to Register:

Go to the University Health Services website, where you will find a link to the Med+Proctor portal as well as detailed instructions on how to register for an account and upload your vaccine information, including your COVID-19 status. There is no charge to use this site. Med+Proctor will offer you the chance to buy a lifetime membership to its service for $10. However, you do not have to purchase this service to register and upload your vaccine information.

Only those who have registered their vaccine status through the Med+Proctor portal are eligible for the incentive prizes. 

COVID-19 vaccines are available at no cost to all members of the Kent State community and their families at the DeWeese Health Center on the Kent Campus. University Health Services offers vaccines Monday through Friday, at varying hours between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Use this link to schedule an appointment or call the health center at 330-672-2322.
