Cougar Vaccination Incentive Program - University of Houston
Skip to main content

The University of Houston encourages everyone in the Cougar community to become vaccinated against COVID-19 if possible. Data suggests that vaccination remains the best intervention for reliable protection.

We have a new opt-in program to reward faculty, staff and students for taking a vaccine: The Cougar Vaccination Incentive Program. The program runs through September 30 and offers participants a number of incentives. Faculty, staff and students who voluntarily participate will receive $50 in ShastaBUCKS and may be eligible for other incentives.

Should you choose to get vaccinated, you can then follow the steps below to become a Cougar Vaccination Incentive Program participant.

Need to be vaccinated? The Texas Public Health Vaccine Scheduler can help you find a vaccine location near you. UH’s COVID-19 Vaccine Information page also updates regularly with vaccine locator resources and on-campus clinics.

Participation registration is now closed.
Recipients of the incentives will be notified shortly.
