NCMC nursing students and staff, in partner with National Guard Troop H and Mosaic Life Care Centers, have helped or plan to help vaccination clinics in Savannah, Bethany, St. Joseph, Maryville and Albany.

“The NCMC nursing department has had the opportunity to assist with COVID vaccination clinics and is excited to be part of such a monumental and historic event,” said Nursing Instructor Ashtyn Wilson. “We appreciate the tremendous amount of hard work that has been put in by the local agencies and are grateful for the opportunity to serve our communities.”

So far, NCMC nursing students and staff have helped distribute thousands of  COVID-19 vaccines to Missourians with plans to continue aiding upcoming vaccination sites.
