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.

Community Relations Department handles the communications, public relations, website design, and publications on-campus.
