Ask your professors about the vaccine and get a coupon


Shay Parker, Correspondent

Students can receive a coupon to redeem a free drink from Gus Mart or Dining Commons just by having a chat with their professors about the vaccine.

Faculty and staff wear a button that says “ask me about the vaccine” or “ask me why I got vaccinated”  to promote conversations with students about getting vaccinated, said Health Promotions Coordinator for Georgia Southern, Jemma Skuraton.

Students can talk to these professors about why they got the vaccine and the benefits, and  receive their card. They can redeem this card at any Gus Mart or Dining Commons for a free fountain drink. 

Any faculty or staff member wanting to sign up can email and anyone including students can take a short course through folio about vaccine confidence and how to encourage their peers to get vaccinated.

This is also the last week to enroll in the vaccine drawings and incentives, with two grand prize drawings left worth $2500 and $5000 coming Thursday.
