Engage every student, faculty and staff member: Make sure every member of the campus community knows they are eligible for a vaccine and has the resources to find one.
Organize the college community: Lead the way by identifying champions for vaccine efforts across campus and implementing a plan to get as many members of the college community vaccinated as possible.
Deliver vaccine access for all: Meet the community where it is - bring vaccines on-site and make it easy for students, staff and faculty to get vaccinated sites nearby this summer.
“Clark State has demonstrated time and time again its commitment to the health, safety, and wellness of the communities we serve, and we want to provide access to the COVID vaccine for students, employees and community members as part of this commitment,” Blondin said. “We have been fortunate to have a strong vaccination effort in Clark County with such leader-partners as the Clark County Health Department and Rocking Horse Community Health Center, and Clark State wishes to be complementary in these efforts.”
Blondin was also appointed to represent the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) as a member of the Campus COVID-19 Vaccine Initiative Steering Committee, who was “asked to share exemplary vaccination efforts on college campuses to highlight in the White House announcement.”
“As a result of the efforts at Clark State, we were approached to be a part of the official launch. There were several colleges approached, with expectations of asking all colleges and universities to join the challenge,” she said.
