Auburn University offering $  1,000 scholarships, meal plans, spray tans for students to get COVID-19 vaccine

The new incentive program comes as Alabama struggles to get people inoculated against COVID-19, with just 40.1% of the state’s population aged 12 and older fully vaccinated, the lowest rate in the nation, according to CDC data. 

Auburn is also offering student organizations the chance to win prizes if all of their members are vaccinated, such as custom Under Armour apparel, custom Yeti cups and coolers, catered food trucks, and free spray tans.
