Just for STLCC Students: $100 for COVID-19 Vaccination
Thursday, August 19, 2021
In an effort to encourage students to get vaccinated against COVID-19, St. Louis Community College will host on-campus vaccination events and offer a $100 incentive.
STLCC student COVID-19 vaccinations will be Aug. 25 and Aug. 26 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at each of the four campuses. Currently enrolled students are welcome to participate; no appointments are needed. The College strongly recommends a COVID-19 vaccination for students and employees, but it is not required.
WHAT: STLCC Student COVID-19 Vaccinations
WHEN: Wednesday, Aug. 25, Thursday, Aug. 26
9 a.m.-1 p.m.
WHERE: STLCC-Florissant Valley, Student Center
STLCC-Forest Park, Student Center
STLCC-Meramec, Student Center
STLCC-Wildwood, Multipurpose Room
MORE: Valid photo ID required.
No appointment needed.
The College is partnering with the St. Louis City Department of Health for vaccinations at STLCC-Forest Park.
The St. Louis County Department of Public Health will provide COVID-19 vaccinations at the Florissant Valley, Meramec and Wildwood campuses.
$100 Incentives and More
The vaccination events will include giveaway items such as laptop computers (25 per campus), gift bags and an extra incentive of $100 for currently enrolled students who get vaccinated against COVID-19.
To be eligible for the incentive, students must receive a final COVID-19 vaccination and submit proof of the vaccination by Oct. 29 at 5 p.m. That means that students must have received both doses of a two-dose series such as Pfizer or Moderna; or a single dose of a one-dose series such as Johnson & Johnson.
The incentive will be deposited into the student’s STLCC account in November.
Students who are already vaccinated against COVID-19 and who are currently enrolled for fall 2021 are also eligible to receive $100 with proof of vaccination by Oct. 29 at 5 p.m.
Details about the student vaccination events and the incentive program will be announced to students via email on or after Aug. 19.
Funding for the Incentive
STLCC is able to pay for the incentive with money from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) from the U.S. Department of Education’s Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act 2021 (CRRSAA).
HEERF provides funds for emergency student aid grants to help students through the impact of the pandemic and supports the College’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic such as expanding learning modalities to virtual or online formats and other safety measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
STLCC received $66,143,161 through HEERF. Details about HEERF reporting is on the College’s website.
The estimated cost to offer $100 incentives to students is $1 million.
A similar incentive program is being offered to STLCC employees from Aug. 23 through Oct. 29 at 5 p.m. For current STLCC employees, the incentive is $500 to be paid in November or December via payroll. The estimated cost for the employee incentive is $1.5 million.
The College requires all students, faculty, staff and visitors to wear masks inside at all STLCC locations. Wearing a mask while indoors with others reduces the risk of both getting and transmitting the virus.
Please continue to maintain a social distance, wash your hands regularly, and stay at home if you are sick.
