“College students tend to find themselves in close proximity with others, in places like dorms and classrooms,” said POP member Professor Ajay Mendoza, ANRP.
“That’s why COVID-19 vaccines and boosters are such a vital part of showing up as our healthiest and best selves on campus this year.
“Being vaccinated will lead to less severe illness from the virus, which will ensure students aren’t distracted from their academic work or social lives while at school and will help them stay healthier in the event that they still become infected.”
While the focus of these clinics will be providing the recently released Omicron-targeted bivalent boosters, primary series vaccines from both Pfizer BioNTech and Moderna will also be available.
“The COVID-19 pandemic taught us that we have to always be ready to respond, and a big piece of that is engaging our community,” said Secretary of Health, Dr. Umair A. Shah.
“Care-A-Van and Power of Providers (POP) do just that. By going into communities with Care-A-Van, we’re able to focus on equitable distribution for those facing barriers to vaccines.
“Through POP, we established partnerships with trusted health care professionals to ensure health and safety, while engaging, educating and empowering the people of Washington.”
