Muskegon Community College (MCC) has joined the national COVID-19 College Vaccine Challenge, which was announced on Wednesday, June 2, by White House officials.
As a participant and a Vaccine Champion College, MCC reaffirms its commitment to educate all campus community members about the availability of COVID-19 vaccines and how to access them, and to encourage everyone to receive a vaccine.
Since the outset of COVID-19, MCC provided its Health and Wellness Center as a site for overflow hospital beds and, more recently, as a location for administering COVID vaccines. The college campus has been used for COVID-19 drive-through testing. MCC faculty and students have volunteered their services at area vaccination clinics.
“As part of our mission as an institution, we dedicate ourselves to building communities and improving lives,” said MCC President Dale K. Nesbary. “Never is that more important to those we serve than during times of crisis. The welfare and safety of our students and staff has remained our foremost concern throughout the COVID-19 epidemic. Having them vaccinated is critical in defeating this virus.”
MCC, which is hosting COVID-19 vaccine clinics on June 3 and August 19, will continue using social media, website posts, traditional media and signage to inform the general public about its vaccination events. For more information, visit www.muskegoncc.edu/vaccines.
