DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Wright State University has announced details of its COVID-19 vaccination reporting process and voluntary giveaway for students, faculty and staff.
The university said employees and students who are fully vaccinated can now report their vaccination status by uploading an image of their federal COVID-19 vaccination card on Med+Proctor, a secure medical third-party website.
Chris Taylor, dean of students and chair of WSU’s COVID task force, said the university conducted a survey earlier in the semester in which 4,200 employees and students reported their vaccination status. Taylor said the school created the new reporting process to get a better idea of who is vaccinated on campus.
“But survey data is of course not, you know, hard data,” said Taylor. “So one of the things we wanted to do is get a better picture of how many folks on campus were vaccinated and then be able to make some good decisions based on that.”
After employees and students upload proof of vaccination, they can go to the university’s COVID-19 website to enter a voluntary giveaway for a chance to win a variety of prizes. Prizes include Barnes & Noble and Starbucks gift cards, parking permits, vacation hours, and $2,500 for two student winners.

The university said it plans to set up a convenient, centralized COVID-19 vaccination and testing site on the Dayton Campus.
