Nevada Colleges Make the COVID-19 Vaccine Possible for Our Clients

By Rhonda Davisson, Transitional Coordinator

Beginning this past March, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) Schools of Medicine and Nursing partnered with their Student Health Center as well as the College of Southern Nevada (CSN) and Nevada State College (NSC) to hold a COVID-19 vaccine clinic on the UNLV Campus.

In mid-March, we were contacted by Christie Putman, Director of Business Operations for UNLV’s School of Medicine, who generously offered the staff and clients of our Harris Springs Ranch and Women and Children’s Campus programs the opportunity to receive the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine if they desired. Thank you, Christie, for thinking of our staff and those that we serve!

As of March 16th, twenty-nine clients and three staff members received their first dose at the UNLV Student Union. Thanks to the generosity of our community partners, we were able to offer a valuable resource to our clients for their health and well-being during this pandemic.

We’d also like to congratulate UNLV’s School of Medicine for officially reaching their 100,000th vaccine administered in Las Vegas, NV as of April 14th!
