MCC To Run Vaccination Clinics on Campus Open to Community
Middlesex Community College (MCC), looking to provide students, faculty, staff and community members with access to the COVID-19 vaccine, announced that the college will run two vaccination clinics on Monday, Sept. 13 and Friday, Sept. 17.
Both clinics will run 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the college’s campus in Lowell. On Monday, Sept. 13, the clinic will take place in MCC’s Federal building and on Friday, Sept. 17, it will be in the college’s Talbot building.
MCC supports the White House in sharing informed and scientific facts about the vaccine and all of the ways that getting a shot helps in the fight against COVID-19. With COVID-19 numbers continuing to rise in Massachusetts due to the Delta variant, doctors and scientists are encouraging people 12 years of age and older to get their shot to help control infections within the community.
In the summer, MCC teamed up with Lowell TeleMedia Center (LTC) to film a series of PSAs about the vaccine featuring MCC students speaking in their first languages to reach a wide audience. The college also jumpstarted a “Caring for the Community” social media campaign with faculty, staff and alumni sharing the reasons why they got vaccinated.
MCC’s Talbot building is located at 44 Middle Street in Lowell. The Federal building is at 50 Kearney Square in Lowell. Upon arriving for their appointment, community members are asked to wear a mask that covers their noses and mouths at all times while inside the building. They should also expect to wait up to 15 minutes after receiving their vaccination.
