Get Vaccinated and Get a Gift Card
Students, get a $10 Town Pump gift card at the Ask Us desk when you present your proof of a COVID-19 shot.
If you get vaccinated after May 1, you can bring your proof of getting a COVID-19 shot to the Ask Us desk in the Strand Union Building and walk away with a $10 Town Pump gift card.
Did I read that right? $10 per shot?
Yes, you read that right, it's $10 per shot. That means that if you get the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, which each need two doses to be fully effective, you can get two gift cards.
But I got a single-dose vaccine...
Did you get the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine? No second shot for you? Don't worry. Showing proof of your J&J vaccine will get you two gift cards at once.
What do I need to do?
- Get a COVID-19 vaccination.
- Come to the Ask Us desk in the SUB.
- Show them your Cat Card and your proof of vaccination.
- Walk away with a gift card.
Remember you must present your proof of vaccination to the Ask Us desk in person. Each person can only take away up to $20 worth of gift cards. You must have received your shots between May 1 and June 20.
MSU University Health Partners has the two-dose Moderna COVID-19 vaccine available. Vaccine clinics will be held at MSU on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
If you are an MSU student, faculty, or staff member who is 18 years or older and would like to be vaccinated against COVID-19, please log into this website using your MSU NetID and password: https://www.montana.edu/health/coronavirus/vaccine-waitlist/index.html Once logged in, fill out the form confirming your interest in becoming vaccinated. You should then receive an email within 48 hours containing a link to sign up for a specific appointment time and date at the next available clinic. Do not share that link with others - it is only valid for one user.
Important reminder on second-dose Moderna vaccination: If you are signing up for your second dose of Moderna, please be sure to sign up for an appointment four weeks after your first dose. CDC states that it is acceptable to receive your second dose 24-42 days following your first dose, but 28 days (four weeks) is optimal. Please wait to submit the form above until at least three weeks since your first dose.
If you have any difficulty filling out the form or have questions about vaccine appointments, please call 406-994-3798.
COVID-19 vaccines are effective, and their safety is closely monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Food and Drug Administration. The CDC recommends that people get a vaccine as soon as they are eligible and able.
Between Dec. 14, 2020, and mid-May, more than 272 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in the U.S. The vaccines were evaluated in tens of thousands of participants in clinical trials and met the FDA's rigorous, scientific standards for safety, effectiveness and manufacturing quality so that they could be granted emergency use authorization.
COVID-19 vaccines have undergone and will continue to undergo the most intensive safety monitoring in U.S. history. This monitoring includes using both established and new safety monitoring systems to make sure that COVID-19 vaccines are safe.
CDC, FDA, and other federal agencies will continue to monitor the safety of COVID-19 vaccines as they continue to become more broadly used in the population.
