Save those who save us! #SleevesUpStillwater

Aug 18, 2021
The City of Stillwater (COS) in collaboration with the Stillwater Medical Center (SMC), Stillwater Chamber of Commerce, and Visit Stillwater are encouraging all citizens to become fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in effort to safeguard our healthcare professionals and help save lives. 

Healthcare professionals at SMC and throughout our community continue to give every effort fighting this debilitating and deadly virus. Healthcare professionals are dealing with extreme exhaustion and critically short-staffed facilities. Yet they remain resolute on the front line battling this virus.

Stillwater and Payne County citizens are asked to become fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in effort to show our healthcare professionals that we value their lives as they have sacrificially and heroically valued ours. To further encourage vaccination participation, a drawing has been added to the campaign as incentive.

Contest & Drawing Dates

The contest begins on Tuesday, August 17 and ends on Thursday, September 30, 2021. The drawing will be on Friday, October 1, 2021.
