How to Enter

Entry into the drawing must be completed by registering for the incentive drawing at go.uky.edu/catsgetboosted and uploading your COVID-19 vaccine booster verification at go.uky.edu/selfreport if you were vaccinated outside of UK. If you were vaccinated at a UK-affiliated site you do not need to self-report unless asked to do so by Health Corps. Entry requires single sign on through the myUK portal, phone number, and the city, state and provider name where you were vaccinated. Entry also requires agreement to the official rules of the drawing and agreement to allow UK Health Corps to verify your student status, vaccination information, and eligibility to receive the prize prior to prize dispersal.

Students who are enrolled in one or more courses at the University of Kentucky who have received their booster dose (third dose) of a Moderna, Pfizer or other World Health Organization approved 2-dose COVID-19 vaccine, or the booster dose for a one-dose Johnson & Johnson or other World Health Organization approved single dose vaccine, may enter to win these drawings.

Students who do not have access to the internet may contact Health Corps at 859-218-SAFE(7233) for assistance entering the drawing.
