COVID-19 Vaccination Reporting and Giveaway

Wright State University encourages all eligible people to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Employees and students who are fully vaccinated may now report their vaccination status to the university and enter into a voluntary giveaway. Wright State launched the giveaway to celebrate those who have already been vaccinated and to encourage vaccination among hesitant students, faculty, and staff.

For full giveaway rules, please visit this site.

Entering the Voluntary Giveaway

Step 1: Vaxx

Become fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The approved vaccines are free, safe, and effective. You are fully vaccinated 14 days after the final dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine, which includes:

You can get the vaccine at Wright State Physicians on the Dayton Campus or at a variety of locations throughout local communities. Learn more at gettheshot.coronavirus.ohio.gov.

Step 2: Report

After completing the final dose of your vaccine, upload an image of your federal COVID-19 vaccination card to Med+Proctor, a secure medical third-party website. This is a free process.

Please note: When you upload an image of your vaccine card, Med+Proctor will ask if you want to pay a fee to transfer your Med+Proctor records to another medical database. You do not have to pay a fee to report your vaccination status with Wright State University. Uploading your vaccine card and entering the vaccination giveaway are free.

Rationale

Collecting data on the vaccination status of faculty, staff, and students will help the university and the COVID-19 Task Force make informed decisions about public health practices and policies. Vaccination remains the most effective way to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Getting vaccinated can also help ensure our university can continue to offer a full campus experience and protect community members who cannot get the vaccine.

Moving Forward

In the Spring Semester, Wright State plans to expand its testing program for employees and students who have yet to submit confirmation of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Dayton Campus Community

Looks for details in the coming weeks on plans for a convenient, centralized COVID-19 vaccination and testing site on the Dayton Campus. This site will support increased surveillance testing of faculty, staff, and students.

Lake Campus Community

The COVID Task Force continues to work with Lake Campus employees and students to promote vaccination and testing. Lake Campus faculty, staff, and students can get vaccinated and tested through regional community partners.
