MOSES LAKE — Big Bend Community College’s Nursing Program is partnering with the Grant County Health District (GCHD) to provide a free, drive-through COVID-19 vaccination clinic on campus. The clinic is open to the college community as well as members of the public.
You are not required to have health insurance to receive the vaccine and will not be asked to prove residency or immigration status. This clinic is considered a safe environment for anyone seeking immunization.
“We are excited to be partnering with the Big Bend nursing program and providing this opportunity for the college community, and the community as a whole, to come out and get vaccinated,” said Grant County Health District Public Information Officer Misty Aguilar. “Every person that comes out is one shot closer to Grant County returning to normalcy and that’s what we are focused on … removing barriers to as many people as possible getting immunized to make that happen.”
The first clinic is scheduled for Thursday, June 10 with those participating returning for their second dose of the vaccination on Thursday, July 8. The clinic will run from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on both dates and the drive-thru route can be found (pictured above).
Participants should enter near the intersection of Randolph Road and Patton Boulevard and follow signage.
“This is a great opportunity for students, families, and the community as a whole to come and get vaccinated,” said BBCC Director of Communications Matt Killebrew. “This is a safe environment for anyone who wishes to come and be immunized and the college is happy to partner with the GCHD and do our part to make these vaccinations available to our students and anyone else who would like to come.”
