Recently, PA faculty members and students volunteered their time to assist at two mass immunization clinics that Crestwood Pharmacy was holding at Crestwood High School to help combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Faculty member Dr. Jennifer Domzalski was alerted to the opportunity by PA student Cara Henahan and contacted the pharmacists to volunteer her time. Domzalski and Henahan volunteered at the first clinic on March 14, 2021 and assisted in the distribution of more than 900 COVID-19 vaccines that day. On April 11, five additional students and instructors volunteered alongside Domzalski and Henahan at a second clinic to screen and prepare 1,255 patients for their vaccines. The PA students were instrumental in how smooth the process was to administer all of these vaccines in a timely manner.
