Want to take part in the vaccine incentives program and earn a chance at a number of exciting prizes? Do not miss your shot to win, as limited time remains for students, faculty and staff to receive a complete vaccination series by the Sept. 30 deadline. To date, more than 85 percent of faculty, 57 percent of staff and 53 percent of Clemson University students have voluntarily uploaded proof of complete vaccination.
If you have not already begun a vaccination series, Sept. 9 is the final day for individuals to receive the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine — which earned full FDA approval last month — in order to receive the second dose 21 days later and still be eligible for the previously announced University drawing. Individuals who receive the second Moderna dose this month or the single dose of Johnson and Johnson must upload proof by Sept. 30 to be eligible.
Students, faculty and staff who have completed their vaccination series are invited to upload proof through the University’s Voluntary Proof of Upload Tool. Vaccination appointments are readily available throughout the state of South Carolina and in the Clemson area. Use the DHEC Vax Locator to search for pharmacies and medical providers in your area.
Each student who submits proof of a complete vaccination series by Sept. 30 will receive $50 in Paw Points. Distribution is beginning this week to students who have submitted proof through the University’s upload tool. Clemson University Student Affairs will send an email notification each week to individuals who receive Paw Points in their TigerOne accounts.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Who is eligible for the prize drawings?
Students who are admitted and enrolled for the Fall 2021 academic semester, as well as employees who are employed at Clemson University at the time they enter the contest and when the prize is received. Both students and employees must have completed the series of COVID-19 vaccinations; either a second dose of a two-dose vaccine (Moderna and Pfizer) or one dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. Other vaccines approved by the World Health Organization will be accepted through the Vaccine Upload Tool as well.
I had one dose of a two-dose vaccine prior to the Sept. 30 deadline; am I eligible?
You are not eligible for the Fall 2021 incentives program unless you have completed the two-dose series of a two-dose vaccine. The University encourages anyone who is able to receive a vaccine to do so. Only individuals who have completed the series of COVID-19 vaccinations; either a second dose of a two-dose vaccine (Moderna and Pfizer) or one dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine; or those approved by the World Health Organization — will be eligible.
Will Clemson be extending its incentives program?
The Fall 2021 incentives program runs through Sept. 30, 2021. At this time, University officials do not have plans to extend the incentives program.
I am unable to receive a vaccine for medical or religious reasons; what options are available for me to participate?
Alternate entry forms will be available to students or employees unable to receive a vaccine due to medical or sincere religious reasons. Please check the Official Terms and Conditions for more information.
I am an online student and do not reside in the Clemson area; are there other incentive options instead of Paw Points?
Clemson University reserves the right to substitute options of similar value in lieu of Paw Points for students who do not reside in the main campus area. Please submit a request to email@example.com. Your status will be verified.
When can I expect Paw Points to be loaded onto my TigerOne account?
Paw Points will be distributed to students who have voluntarily provided proof of full vaccination through the University’s Vaccine Upload Tool by Sept. 30. You will receive an email from Clemson University Student Affairs alerting you that Paw Points have been loaded onto your TigerOne account, which will begin this week.
What if I choose to be vaccinated after Sept. 30?
The University encourages anyone who is able to receive a vaccine to do so. Redfern Health Center currently offers the Moderna vaccine; call 864-656-1541 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment. In addition, Vax Clinic is returning to main campus next week, Sept. 13-17, to administer vaccines in conjunction with testing hours at Littlejohn Coliseum.
