Recently, the University of Clermont College and Clermont County Public Health Bureau are working together to open a new vaccination station for the COVID-19 vaccines at the University’s student activities center in Batavia campus. The new center was officially opened on March 13. People who go to the vaccine station need to make an appointment in advance. At present, visits without appointment are not accepted.
The new covid-19 vaccination station will be double more than the coverage of general hospitals. At present, about 300 people are vaccinated every day by the health department, while the new vaccine station of UC will be able to vaccinate 600 people every day. Recently, the weekly dose of vaccine inoculated by health departments has increased from 200 doses in early February to more than 1200 doses in early March.
“We are looking forward to working with the University of Clermont College to provide vaccination to more residents,” said health commissioner Julianne Nesbit “During this COVID-19 epidemic, we have been relying on many community partners. The latest cooperation will benefit the whole Clermont county. We really appreciate that UC can provide us with such an urgent need in time.”
“We are very pleased to work with the public health department of Clermont county and are honored to provide this important service space to the community in time,” said Jeff Bauer, Dean of the University of Cincinnati at Clermont college. Vaccination is very important for guiding us to get rid of COVID-19. We are very proud to be able to help. “

To be sure, COVID-19 has received great attention from the government in the United States and has begun to implement it in the community. With this new covid-19 vaccination site, it must be a great news for UC teachers and students, which is a closer step to the full opening-up of vaccination for campus students in the future! I hope that during this period of time we can safely go through the epidemic.
