SUNY Cobleskill Hosts COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic for Campus Members; Vaccines Administered by Students of College’s Paramedic Program

SUNY Cobleskill hosted an on-campus COVID-19 vaccination clinic April 28, open to students, faculty, and campus community members. More than 110 single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccines were administered by students in the College’s Paramedic program. The clinic was made possible through the assistance of SUNY and the Schoharie County Department of Health. Undistributed vaccines were given to the Department for public use.

“This vaccine clinic fits who we are as a College: we are a place-based learning institution, and we believe that education is in the service of our community. Students and faculty in our Paramedic program are giving the vaccine to their peers today, and with it, protection from the dangers of this pandemic. That exemplifies the value of being stewards of our place,” said SUNY Cobleskill President Marion Terenzio, Ph.D. “Today, we’re taking a big step toward a new reality in which we are once again a robust, bustling campus with a full complement of students and faculty in our classrooms. We thank SUNY for their leadership and stewardship keeping our campuses safe during a highly evolving and complex public health crisis. The Chancellor and his team have put our campuses on track for more successful semesters ahead.”

“It is critical to be able to offer these kinds of services right on campus so that we can make sure that they are available to everybody. It is the key to begin getting back to all the vibrant activity of life before the pandemic,” said Dr. Amy Gildemeister, Schoharie County Director of Public Health. “The Department of Health and SUNY Cobleskill have been working together since COVID-19 first arrived. The College continues to show that they will take the necessary steps to protect students’ health and protect the in-person educational experience.”

SUNY Cobleskill’s Paramedic education offers hands-on experience in the lab, hospital, and field to prepare students for entry into the paramedicine, providing compassionate care as a critical link between patients and hospitals.
