YVC launches #YaksVaxUp campaign to encourage vaccination against COVID-19
This spring Yakima Valley College collaborated with the Yakima Health District to offer mobile COVID-19 vaccination clinics on the Yakima Campus. The clinics offered a convenient opportunity for students and staff to receive their vaccination in a comfortable and familiar environment.
ASYVC Yakima Student Council President Penny Tahmalwash shared why it was important for her to get vaccinated: “I got the COVID vaccine to protect myself and my children, it is important for their future that I
stay healthy and safe for their sake.”
ASYVC Yakima Student Council Vice President Miguel Blancas also shared his thoughts on why receiving the
vaccine was essential: “I got my vaccine because I want to help move my family and community forward so we can all celebrate together safely.”
In total 74 of people were vaccinated during YVC’s clinics.
