Nursing students at Snead State Community College are serving among those distributing COVID-19 vaccines to Marshall County residents.
The Snead State Health Sciences Department was contacted by the Marshall County Health Department in February about assisting with the COVID vaccine clinic, and their volunteerism grew from there.
“(By the end of that week), we participated in four clinics at the Health Department,” said Health Sciences Interim Director Lisa Brock. “We have another one at the Health Department and one at Marshall Medical Center South this month.”
About 30 students assisted with the vaccine clinics, and those students averaged giving more than 300 vaccines per day.
“It’s a privilege for us to work with community partners like the Marshall County Health Department and Marshall Medical Center South. Our students are able to serve their community while earning practical work experience,” said Dr. Brock.
