Return to Campus Update: Wednesday, June 30

 

June 30, 2021

Dear Loyola Community,

Loyola University Chicago's weekly Return to Campus Update helps keep our community informed as we continue our phased reopening. This week, learn more about upcoming vaccination deadlines and the Loyola Upload Lottery, Loyola's new vaccine incentive program.

Remember—if you are fully vaccinated, uploading your COVID-19 vaccination card to the Loyola Health function is quick, easy, and secure.

First Dose Deadline: July 2

If you plan to receive the Pfizer vaccine, you must receive your first dose by this Friday, July 2 in order to meet Loyola's vaccination card upload deadline. To make a vaccine appointment, visit zocdoc.com/vaccine or vaccines.gov.

As a reminder, all students are required to upload COVID-19 vaccination cards no later than Friday, August 6.

 

Loyola Upload Lottery: Upload and Win

Want to score Lollapalooza tickets for this summer? Or cheer on the Cubs or Sox from the comfort of the ballpark? Getting your COVID-19 vaccine will help protect you in these kinds of large gatherings, and you can also win tickets and other fun prizes!

Beginning Friday, July 9, names of students with uploaded and approved vaccination cards will be drawn weekly through a randomized process to receive prizes. Please be on the lookout for additional details on the Loyola Upload Lottery website and in next week's Return to Campus Update.

In the meantime, don't forget to upload your COVID-19 vaccination card to Loyola Health—we thank our more than 8,000 students who have already done so. The sooner you submit your vaccine record, the better your chances to win! As a reminder, all information shared with Loyola Health is kept confidential and secure.

 

Celebrating Safely

As we head into the Fourth of July holiday weekend, we want to remind our community to celebrate safely. If you are not fully vaccinated, please continue to wear a mask and practice social distancing. Even if you are fully vaccinated, follow the recommended guidance.
