Hundreds lined up in the basketball courts of the Student Recreation Center (North) this past week for UCR’s Staff and Faculty Flu Shot Clinic. The two-day event, taking place on September 21st and September 25th, was hosted by UCR Health in partnership with Kaiser Permanente.
Given the current pandemic, UCR Health and Kaiser Permanente encouraged UCR Staff and Faculty to get their flu shots in order to keep the community safe from yet another illness. All CDC guidelines were followed and safety precautions were taken throughout the duration of the event.
The clinic could not have been made possible without the help of volunteers from both organizations, who helped with a variety of tasks, as well as residents from UC Riverside’s School of Medicine, who administered the vaccines. Ultimately, they were able to provide over 600 doses of vaccine for staff and faculty and even expanded to essential contract workers as well as retirees.
