Vaccination Incentive Program

THE CHALLENGE:

Millikin University acknowledges that the vaccination against the COVID-19 virus of its students, faculty and staff is essential to returning to normal operations on campus. We also acknowledge that some members of our campus community may have strong and sincere personal, religious, and/or medical objection to vaccination.

While we realize it will not be possible to vaccinate 100% of the individuals who work and study at Millikin, achieving population immunity through a large percentage of vaccinated individuals should be our goal.

THE GOAL: 

Millikin seeks to have at least 85% of its campus population vaccinated against COVID-19.

THE DEADLINE:

July 1, 2021

THE REWARD:

If the 85% goal is met, the University will be able to remove the majority of the COVID-19 restrictions currently in place. These restrictions include, but are not limited to:

  • Required masking indoors and outdoors
  • Gathering limits and restrictions
  • Occupancy limits in classrooms and other University facilities
  • Social distancing requirements
  • Limits on food service and dining options
  • Residential student occupancy limits

Millikin continues to be very serious about the fight against COVID-19. It will take continued dedication by all members of the University community to suppress the spread and reduce the threat of the virus to allow us to return to normal operations for the fall 2021 semester. We are counting on every member of our campus community to join this effort and help us return to the full range of work that makes Millikin such a great place for students to get an education! Thank you for all the work you have already done to fight the virus on campus. With your help, we can get “Back to the Blue!”

With great respect for you all,
