April 7, 2021 | Campus News

East Central College will again partner with Sinks Pharmacy for a community COVID-19 vaccination clinic.

The clinic will be Monday, April 19, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Donald Shook Student Center (DSSC) Gym at ECC.

This clinic is open to the public, adults 18 years old and up, and those who attend can choose between manufacturers Moderna or Johnson & Johnson. Appointments are required.

The clinic offers a first-round inoculation using the Moderna vaccine. It is not the second round for the clinic held on March 30.

The second dose for the Sinks’ April 19 clinic will be administered May 17, also in the ECC gym. There is no second dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccination.

According to Dr. Michelle Smith, executive director of institutional effectiveness at ECC, this is the second vaccination clinic that ECC is holding in conjunction with Sinks Pharmacy.

“We encourage you to consider the personal benefits of vaccination, as well as the benefits for all of us in battling this pandemic,” she said.

Dr. Smith, who is a COVID-19 contact at the college, noted that the first vaccination event was run smoothly, and 1,380 people were vaccinated.
