The White House recently released the COVID-19 College Vaccine Challenge, and LC firmly joined all higher education institutions to help mitigate the spread of the virus. Our college is committed to acting boldly and getting our community vaccinated to accelerate the progress toward protecting all in our local population against the pandemic.

“Our mission is to ensure that our students, employees and our community are safer each day,” LC Safety and Risk Manager Javier Cano said. “Vaccination is one of the several efforts we can accomplish as a community to protect the lives of the many people we love, support and live with.”

While a significant number of adults are vaccinated, many teens have not yet obtained the opportunity to be protected against COVID-19. Therefore, Laredo College has established a pathway for qualifying students to receive a free vaccine.

Due to the increase of on-campus instruction and hybrid courses, LC is implementing vaccine availability to keep everyone safe as we continue helping students excel academically. Our institution will offer free Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer vaccines for students, employees and the public. Everyone will have access to these vaccines in June and July through a partnership with Curative.

Anybody over the age of 18 interested in having this virus protection administered can set up an appointment or stop by either campus. On June 9, 16 and 23, and July 7, 14, and 21, Curative clinics will have the COVID-19 vaccine available at the Ft. McIntosh Campus Kazen Student Center. On June 30 and July 28, Curative professionals will be administering the vaccine at the South Campus in Billy Hall Student Center, first floor. The clinics will be accepting walk-ins from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. on the mentioned dates as well.

The institution’s goal is to protect our student body as well as our employees. The continuous efforts to stop the spread of this deadly virus do not stop at continuously disinfecting, maintaining a safe distance, using face coverings and limiting capacity at each building. We highly encourage students returning to campus for the summer or fall semesters to take advantage of this excellent opportunity to be protected against the COVID-19 virus.
