Bishop State Community College is partnering with Franklin Primary Health Center to provide the community, students, faculty, and staff access to the COVID-19 vaccine.
The two will partner for a COVID testing and vaccination drive on Thursday, October 7, 2021 from 9:30 a.m. - Noon on the Bishop State Main Campus. Franklin Health’s mobile unit will be on-site and parked on Broad Street in front of the gym.
COVID-19 testing, vaccinations, and the booster shot will be available during this time. Students who come out to receive their first shot will receive a Bishop State t-shirt. If they return to get the second shot, students will receive a $50 gift card.
Individuals who receive their vaccine during the drive will receive an immunization card with the date they were given the first dose. It will also tell them when their next dose is due. Participants should bring the card back with them for the second dose. Franklin Health will return to Bishop State’s Main Campus on the specified date to provide the second dose of the vaccine. The booster shot will be available on both dates to individuals who meet the 2 series requirement and 8 months apart, or the latest CDC guidelines.
