First lady Jill Biden will be visiting Grand Rapids Community College on Thursday as it hosts a pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinic from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. at GRCC’s Administration Building, 415 E. Fulton St.
Biden’s visit will highlight the partnership between federal pharmacy partners and community colleges. The first lady, who is a community college professor, will tour GRCC’s vaccination clinic and meet some of the individuals who will be getting their shots.
“We’re proud to welcome the first lady to GRCC and deeply appreciate her support for community colleges and for vaccinating our community members,” GRCC President Bill Pink said. “Community colleges will play a vital role as our region emerges from the pandemic. This pop-up vaccination clinic is one more example of how GRCC and partnerships make West Michigan stronger.”
GRCC has previously participated in other COVID-19 vaccination events. Its nursing students recently administered vaccinations to fellow students, campus employees and others as part of the Shot of Love campaign, a partnership with Urban Church Leadership Center and Spectrum Health.
Pink said the vaccines are an additional layer of protection, one of several tools used in GRCC’s ongoing efforts to keep students, faculty, staff and community members safe with an eye toward a more familiar fall semester.
