Southern Offers Free Vaccination Clinic
In an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus, Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College will be offering a free vaccination clinic Monday, the first day of classes, on its Logan campus.
The free clinic will be open to all students, faculty, and staff.
The Southern vaccination clinic will be held in the Savas Kostas Performing Arts Center in building A from 11am til 2pm.
This clinic will be offering the first dose of the vaccine. A second clinic will be held in three weeks at the same location for the second dose. As the Delta Variant spreads, our strongest protection is to become vaccinated.
“We want to make this as easy a process for our students and employees as possible,” said Southern President Pam Alderman.
This will be a walk-in clinic. No appointment is necessary. Just bring your photo ID and insurance card.
“The higher our vaccination rate, the more we are protected as an institution,” Alderman said.
The vaccinations will be distributed by Man Pharmacy.
“With students returning to school, Southern is encouraging everyone, students and staff alike, to get vaccinated,” said Bill France, Southern’s Director of Communication said. “We understand that some are not able to because of health reasons. If you are able to get the vaccine, please do. At this time, masks are optional on campus. We know the Delta Variant is here, and we are following the guidelines set forth by the Governor and the CDC. Southern’s own Covid-19 task force is meeting regularly to monitor the situation and will update our policy accordingly.”
France encourages students, staff and faculty to follow Southern’s Facebook page for the latest announcements.
