Clark State College in partnership with the Clark County Combined Health District will host a COVID-19 vaccination clinic from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on April 15th at Clark State’s main campus, located at 570 East Leffel Lane, Springfield.
The vaccination clinic will offer the Pfizer vaccine and is open to Clark State students and employees, as well as their families and the community.
“Clark State has demonstrated time and time again its commitment to the health, safety, and wellness of the communities we serve, and we want to provide access to the COVID vaccine for students, employees, and community members as part of this commitment,” said Dr. Jo Alice Blondin, president of Clark State. “We have been fortunate to have a strong vaccination effort in Clark County with such as Rocking Horse and the Clark County Health Department, and Clark State wishes to be complementary in these efforts.”
Vaccinations will be administered by Clark State Practical Nursing and Registered Nursing faculty and clinical nursing students.
Dr. Rhoda Sommers, dean of health, human and public services at Clark State, said Clark State’s nursing students are well-prepared for this event, and the nursing faculty have also been engaged in vaccine distribution and will be on-site to support the students.
“I’m so pleased that our Practical Nursing and Registered Nursing students have the opportunity to help host a vaccination clinic on our Leffel Lane campus,” said Sommers. “Not only is this helpful for the community, Clark State employees, and other students, but this also allows our students to have first-hand experience in working at the front lines of a global pandemic.”
Physical distancing and masks will be required at the clinic. While walk-ins are welcome, preregistration is encouraged to secure a vaccination. Online registration is available at: https://armorvax-app.azurewebsites.net/Home/Invitation?code=CLR-K21
Participants are asked to enter the Sara T. Landess Technology and Learning Center (TLC) through door #20 where you will be greeted and guided through the process.
Clark State will host a second vaccination clinic on May 6 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for recipients of the vaccine to receive the second shot in the series.
