University of New Mexico offers money to its students vaccinated against Coronavirus

NEW MEXICO – With the aim of defeating the coronavirus to return to complete normality without the risk of being infected in massive events or in the daily routine of taking face-to-face classes, the University of New Mexico (UNM) is offering its students vaccinated against the coronavirus economic incentives.

Through its electronic page the house of studies announces that registered students for the fall of 2021 who have completed their vaccination schedule can enter the UNM COVID-19 Vaccination Program, where UNM will deposit US $ 100 of federal HEERF funds into your account when you upload proof of vaccination.

Employees of the main campus and branch also participate, in their case they will be entered by UNM in a drawing for one of the 50 prizes of US $ 1,000 when they register their proof of complete vaccination.

The letter mentions that it is important to take into account that the incentive program may end at any time, and if vaccines against COVID-19 become a requirement for a cohort of people, that cohort will no longer be eligible to receive the incentives. financial

For the UNM it is important that students and academics return to the classrooms, however it is essential that health prevail and for this they must go with their complete vaccination scheme, also taking advantage of the opportunity to win an economic stimulus.

UNM President Garnett S. Stokes noted that “getting vaccinated is the best thing you can do to ensure that our campus and our community remain safe and open, and that we can all have an amazing fall semester of 2021.”

In addition to there are several places they can go to get the vaccine for free, there will be additional vaccination clinics available to students on campus this fall.

The economic stimulus is not the first action the University of New Mexico takes to motivate its staff and students to get vaccinated, it has implemented other measures for the safety of the campus community, including a COVID Panel to monitor campus traffic. and positive results for Coronavirus.

New Mexico residents are currently preparing for their next return to face-to-face classes.

Children can be vaccinated free of charge at the Public Health Offices of the New Mexico Department of Health in the Southwest Region, as they need to be up-to-date with their childhood immunization schedule to attend classes.
