Aloha Mai, Gator Ohana!

I hope this email finds you well! It has been quite a year and we miss seeing you on campus! This email comes to you from the Student Affairs Division and ReOpening Committee with an exciting opportunity to sign up for a covid-19 vaccine on campus.

We are honored to be working in collaboration with Trustee Navas and The Equity in Education Coalition team (www.eec-wa.org) to provide access to the Covid-19 vaccine on our campus to support and serve our South King County communities. Thirty-one (31%) of all eligible Black, Indigenous, and People of color in South King County have gotten their vaccine. Our partnership with The Equity in Education Coalition to host a pop-up vaccination site on our campus strengthens our commitment to getting the vaccine out to our families and communities.

The details:

  • We are currently offering all individuals 16+ years old and older the Pfizer Vaccine on Monday, May 3rd, 3pm-7pm, in the Mel Lindbloom Student Union Grand Hall
    • 16 and 17 year olds MUST be accompanied by a parent/guardian unless they are emancipated or international students
    • Follow-up appointment for the 2nd vaccine will be on May 24th
  • We are prioritizing classified staff, students, bipoc communities, elders, and folx with disabilities
  • Please wear masks and be prepared to stand in line 6ft apart
  • Please sign up at: https://forms.gle/krW9mZfH5ujYqsd29 . ​Sign-ups are limited so please do not delay signing up if you would like to be vaccinated on Monday.
    • This sign-up is for Green River College community members
  • Please only sign up if you are certain of your availability and that you will come to your assigned appointment on Monday so we do not waste available vaccines with no-shows

We would like to say our deepest thanks to Trustee Navas and the EEC as well as the volunteers and staff members who have been coordinating and will be working this pop-up. This is just part of the work we are doing to help in getting the vaccine to our most vulnerable groups to best combat hospitalizations and deaths from this terrible pandemic and to keep our community safe.

Please take advantage of this opportunity!

Malama pono (take care),
dani-
