Our path forward
We need our community to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Current Vaccination Rates
Our best defense against COVID-19 is for everyone to get vaccinated. Vaccination rates are updated Tuesdays by 2 p.m.
Last updated on June 15, 2021.
Vaccination Incentive Program
WVU's vaccination incentive program, which will begin July 1, is intended to increase the number of students, faculty and staff who verify their vaccination information by the Aug. 1 deadline.
Incentives include, but are not limited to:
- Free Chick-fil-A
- Free Starbucks
- Free meal plans, Mountie Bounty and Dining Dollars
- Adventure WV trips
- Guaranteed football or basketball student season tickets
- Free textbooks for a semester
- Barnes & Noble shopping spree
- $500 deposit into a student organization of choice
- Dinner for 6 with President Gordon Gee at Blaney House
- Additional WVU prize packs
Those who have verified their vaccine will be randomly selected throughout July to receive a variety of these giveaways. Winners will be notified via email. Official rules and a finalized list of giveaways will be available by Thursday, July 1.
If the University reaches a 70% vaccination verification rate by Aug. 1, the University is also committed to holding a large concert like FallFest at some point this academic year.
Learn more about vaccination deadlines, where to go to get vaccinated and the program in the story on WVUToday.
Vaccines are our best defense against COVID-19 and its variants.
