Vaccination-Contest-Key

Vaccination-drive

Beginning January 15, and running throughout the spring semester, pharmacy students are competing to see who can give the most COVID-19 vaccinations. Some students are P4s on hospital rotations, some students are P1s vaccinating for the first time, but all are future pharmacists who understand the critical role that they are playing to eradicate the COVID-19 virus.

Totals will be updated every Friday, so check back often to see who is in the lead.

Check out the full list of participants.

Pharmacists Vaccinate and Educate

Pharmacists are some of the most trusted medical professionals. They’re also some of the most available. This combination is making them a key part in not just giving the vaccine, but in also educating those populations who might be hesitant to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
