COVID-19 Update: November 11, 2021

Thursday, November 11, 2021

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

We wanted to make you aware of a cash incentive vaccination opportunity available through St. Peter’s Health.

St. Peter's Health and community partners are holding a one-day COVID-19 vaccination clinic with a $50 cash incentive at the Lewis and Clark County Fairgrounds on Wednesday, November 17 from 2 – 7 pm.

Appointments are available for people 18 years and older seeking their first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. Each participant will receive $50 cash immediately after receiving the shot.

For more information and to sign up, please visit www.sphealth.org/VaxCash.

Healthcare professionals both locally and worldwide continue to emphasize that the best way for us to move beyond this pandemic and help prevent future outbreaks is for individuals to get the safe, effective and highly-tested COVID vaccine.

We also want to take this opportunity to remind our campus community that we continue to have a mask requirement in most public indoor spaces on campus. Unfortunately, Helena’s community transmission levels continue to be in the red zone/high range, and until we see a significant reduction in this current COVID-19 surge that is “overwhelming our local health care system,” we will continue to have these requirements on campus.

We all want to return to life as it was. As Saints, we should all be part of the solution. Let’s do our best to protect the health and safety of each other, our loved ones, and our greater community.

Let’s do this, Saints!
