  1. If students are completely vaccinated, give them the privilege of hanging out unmasked etc. If you do NOT incentivize vaccinations with special privileges, WTF is the point of getting the vaccine. Dean, as you like to say and as I will say to you, ‘do better.’

      1. Uh, no. I understand the threat of COVID and being safe, but the main reason anyone gets a vaccine, like for any other illness, is to prevent themselves from getting sick first. I doubt most people are getting it thinking they’ll directly prevent deaths.

        Most people are getting the vaccine to accelerate the return to normalcy and to reduce the need for as many restrictions. So, it should absolutely be encouraged for students to get the vaccine, but the benefits should be more clearly advertised, including incentives.

    1. The point of getting the vaccine is to build immunity towards a deadly virus. Furthermore, you should have the respect of wearing a mask in public regardless. Wearing a mask lessens the spread of deadly viruses and diseases towards both high-risk and normal-risk persons. This preventive measure could’ve possibly stopped this pandemic from occurring to the extent it did in the first place, saving hundreds of thousands of lives.

      Thus, be respectful, wear your mask, and get vaccinated. Most importantly, it shouldn’t need to be incentivized to do your part in saving other people’s lives.
