The health of our students and employees in our NOC Family is of critical importance. As the cases decreased this summer many people dropped their guard to COVID-19, although we are learning that the variants have increased transmission rates and that people that are testing positive is back to the November 2020 levels. We have learned that people that are vaccinated are less likely to become infected, and if infected the severity of their illness is greatly reduced.
NOC wants to help keep you healthy, keep you learning in the classrooms, and allow you to stay active in college athletics and activities. We can best accomplish this by having as many people vaccinated as possible at all NOC campuses. We are incentivizing this by creating a COVID-19 Vaccination Incentive Contest.
The goal of NOC COVID-19 Vaccination Incentive Contest is to substantially increase the number of fully vaccinated people who are teaching, working, learning, socializing, and living on our campuses. Below are vaccine incentive details and frequently asked questions for both students and employees at Northern Oklahoma College.
