UMKC students turn out to get first dose of COVID-19 vaccine
Students from UMKC’s schools of medicine, nursing, pharmacy and dentistry helped administer the shots
KANSAS CITY, Mo. —
There was a big turnout Friday to get the COVID-19 vaccine at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
“Just doing my part in the community to make sure I’m safe around everyone else,” said Emma Wilson, a student at UMKC.
Wilson was just one of nearly 1,000 UMKC students who were vaccinated Friday. She said it’s a long time coming.
“I play on the soccer team here and it’s been pretty hard since we had to cancel our season,” she said.
Truman Medical Centers/University Health hosted the clinic, using students from four of UMKC’s schools of medicine, nursing, pharmacy and dentistry to help administer the shots.
