Video: If I've already had COVID-19, why should I get the vaccine?

Dr. ​Heather Eberspacher, medical director at the University Health Center, breaks down why getting vaccinated remains important even if you’ve already had COVID-19.

Once you are fully vaccinated, you are encouraged to submit your information to the UNL voluntary vaccine registry. Participants are eligible for the weekly prize drawings, as well as grand prizes. A full list of prizes is available here.

The registry allows faculty, staff and students to submit their name, NUID number, preferred email, affiliation with the university, details on vaccine type and dates received, and upload documentation. All vaccines approved by the World Health Organization and recognized by the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department are accepted for the registry and the prize drawing. Details are available in the registry.

Need to get vaccinated? Details on vaccination availability can be found here.

More details on the university’s plans to return to primarily in-person, full-capacity instruction, the voluntary vaccine registry and weekly prize drawings are available on the university’s COVID-19 website.
