Millikin COVID Vaccination Clinic

The vaccination clinics will also serve as a Performance Learning opportunity for Millikin School of Nursing students as they will have the opportunity to administer COVID-19 vaccines as part of their clinical experiences.

"Millikin University is proud to partner with the Macon County Health Department to offer on-campus COVID-19 vaccination clinics to our community," said Raphaella Prange, vice president for Student Affairs at Millikin. "Our School of Nursing has been pivotal in maintaining a strong relationship with our community health partners, and we are beyond thrilled that our students in the School of Nursing will be an integral part of these clinics. The vaccination clinics will be a meaningful example of Millikin's hallmark of Performance Learning, providing continued on-the-ground, real experience during the pandemic for our students interested in community and public health careers."
