The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has opened a voluntary COVID-19 Vaccine Registry for students and staff.

Deb Fiddelke is the Chief Communications Officer for the university and said the registry will help the school understand its vaccination rate.

“It just gives us a sense of how many people on our campus are vaccinated. It allows us to plan more accurately and more appropriately for the fall,” she said. “The more people in our campus and the more people in our community, our UNL community are vaccinated, the more free and open things can be in the fall.”

Several prizes are available for those on the registry.

The grand prize for students is one year of free tuition. The highest prize for faculty are tickets to the 2022 Northwestern football game with Chancellor Ronnie Green in Ireland.

Weekly prizes will be awarded beginning on July 5.
