Montgomery College President Dr. DeRionne Pollard spoke a day ahead of MC’s Germantown campus launching as a state-run mass vaccination clinic.
Pollard said that the college was “honored” to serve its community.
“There are three things every [community] in our nation needs right now — every community, every town across the nation: one is vaccines, second is jobs for vulnerable populations, and third is a skilled labor force. The thing I know for sure, there is one place in the country you can get all three — and that is at your local community college.”
By the end of April, there will be a total of 13 state-run clinics across Maryland.
Marylanders 16 and up are eligible to preregister to receive the vaccine at state-run vaccination clinics.
All Marylanders 16+ are now eligible at Maryland's mass vaccination sites. #GoVAXMaryland
