Whatcom County’s first large-scale community vaccination site is a collaborative effort between Bellingham Technical College, Unity Care NW, Whatcom County Health Department, Whatcom Unified Command, Family Care Network, PeaceHealth, Sea Mar Community Health Centers, Hoagland Pharmacy, and Whatcom Community College (WCC). The Community Vaccination Center will be held on BTC’s main campus and staffed in part by BTC and WCC nursing students.
“We’re happy to help get the county vaccinated,” said Interim President of Bellingham Technical College Walter Hudsick. “Our college has been an integral component of this county’s economic development for many years and this contribution is just part of that role. The sooner we get everyone vaccinated, the sooner we can get everyone back to work.”
