Summer of Care vaccination campaign

Last week ASU launched its Summer of Care vaccination campaign. The goal of this campaign is to engage immersion (on campus) students who have not been vaccinated or have not uploaded their vaccination card to This campaign will run through the month of July. As a thank you to those students who have been vaccinated and uploaded their vaccination card, weekly drawings will be held for a wide range of prizes including two tickets on the 50-yard-line to watch the Territorial Cup football game against UArizona and multiple $250 Visa gift cards. Full details on the campaign can be found in the new toolkit
Below are some quick links to help you navigate the toolkit:


University leadership has asked that we increase our vaccination campaign efforts significantly. To ensure these goals are met, we need help from every unit. Please refer to the unit contribution slide in the toolkit for specifics on expectations from units.

The new toolkit will be updated weekly with new graphics for the campaign, along with other supporting content and resources such as a list of FAQs and social media responses for feedback you may receive on your channels. Be sure to check back every Monday.
