October 05, 2021

On Thursday, September 2, 2021, Walgreens kicked off their HBCU Mobile Vaccination Clinic Tour with a stop at Morris College in Sumter, S.C. The bus was on campus from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. as a part of Walgreens' COVID-19 vaccine equity initiative, which is focused on addressing hesitancy and removing barriers that hinder access to immunizations, especially in rural and medically underserved communities that have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic. 

Walgreens representatives administered Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 and Flu shots to our campus community and the public in an effort to help prevent the spread of COVID, severe complications, and deaths related to COVID-19. As a part of the partnership with Walgreens, food and music accompanied the clinic.

"A special thanks is extended to Congressman Clyburn, Rep. Alma Adams- leader of the Bipartisan HBCU Caucus in the U.S. Congress, Ms. Katie Smith and the entire Walgreens family for remembering Morris College and other sister institutions during such a challenging and critical time in the history of America," said Juana Davis-Freeman, dean of Student Affairs and coordinator of the event.
