As of last week, UGA fully vaccinated more than 13,000 people and administered about 24,000 vaccines. The university had about 50,000 students, faculty members and employees on campus last year.
There is some fine print regarding the drawings. Senior administrators are ineligible and employee awards must be taxed through payroll. UGA said student awards will not interfere with other assistance being received.

Senior administrators are the only group not eligible, and employees’ awards must be taxed appropriately through payroll. Student awards will be processed through Student Financial Aid and will not interfere with other assistance being received.
