GRC to host pop up COVID-19 vaccination clinics
By Philip Denman, August 12, 2021
Green River College will host community pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinics on its main Auburn campus from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. on August 23, September 17 and October 11 in the River Room, located in the Mel Lindbloom Student Union. Register for the September 17 clinic today.
The event is co-hosted by GRC and the International Community Health Services (ICHS) and will offer the Pfizer Vaccine (12+) and the Johnson & Johnson Vaccine (18+). Minors should be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian. Language support in Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, and Vietnamese will be available.
GRC is a vaccinated college. As it prepares for a phased return to campus for fall of this year, Green River strongly encourages all members of the Gator community-students, staff and faculty-to get vaccinated as soon as possible to protect the health and safety of all. A list of additional vaccination sites and available appointments are found here: https://vaccinelocator.doh.wa.gov/.
“This is just part of the work we are doing to help in making the vaccine super accessible to our campus and surrounding community in order to best combat hospitalizations and deaths from this terrible pandemic and to keep our communities safe.” dani crivello-chang, dean, campus life, said.
All are welcome to Green River College, regardless of their vaccination status. Employees and students will need to verify that they have been fully vaccinated unless they are claiming a medical, religious, or philosophical exemption. People are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the second Moderna or Pfizer dose, or two weeks after receiving the single-dose J&J vaccine. Students and employees who have verified that they are fully vaccinated are not required to wear a face covering on campus. Anyone who is visiting campus, not fully vaccinated, or have not verified their vaccination status must wear a face covering at all times while at any GRC location. Individuals who are vaccinated but would still like to wear a face covering are encouraged to do so.
