U of L has launched a summer social media campaign with the hashtag #LsUpSleevesUp to help increase vaccination rates among the Cardinal community. The campaign is part of the university’s efforts to answer the White House and U.S. Department of Education’s call for colleges and universities to help end the pandemic by signing up for the COVID-19 College Vaccine Challenge.

U of L community members can participate in the campaign by posting a selfie on social media pages with the reason why you decided to get vaccinated, include the hashtags #LsUpSleevesUp and #CovidCollegeChallenge, and follow the university’s Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and Twitter to keep up with the campaign.

U of L continues to encourage community members to get vaccinated. The university has mentioned the following resources to seek out a vaccine:

  • Text your zip code to 438829 to get a text back with vaccine sites near you.
  • Call the CDC’s COVID-19 Vaccination Hotline, 1-800-232-0233, to receive assistance with finding a vaccination location offering your preferred vaccine type.
  • Visit to find a location convenient to you or its Spanish equivalent,
