Central Valley colleges and universities are serving California and their respective communities as key partners in the state’s plan to provide safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines by lending their campuses as mass COVID-19 vaccination sites.
One of the first mass vaccination sites in the Central Valley was Reedley College. This opened the door for 10 fellow CVHEC members to follow suit and provide locations for local community residents to get the necessary treatment needed in the fight against the deadly virus.
“We are proud of our higher education member campuses who stepped up to the plate for their respective communities during the pandemic by providing vaccinations sites,” said Dr. Ben Duran, executive director of the Central Valley Higher Education Consortium, noting that many also provided testing sites.
“Academic institutions are a vital part of the communities they serve and this is one way to expand that service.”
