CASC Poteau Serving as Vaccination Site for Area Educators

Beginning on Tuesday, March 2, from 1 pm to 5 pm, and each Tuesday thereafter (sans March 16th), Carl Albert State College will serve as a COVID-19 vaccination clinic site for all area educators. “We have been working extensively with our area health departments and, as educators ourselves, are thrilled to offer this service to our area school systems,” said Vicky Russell, CASC Nursing Instructor. “To be able to fill a need in our area, and especially for those on the front lines each day, is just an honor.”

The CASC clinic will be held in the Mick Thompson Fieldhouse located in the south section of campus, and will run on a volunteer pool from CASC students, staff, and faculty. “We are so proud to partner with the health department on providing a site for life-saving vaccinations, and thrilled to serve as the vaccination hub for educators in southeast Oklahoma,” said CASC President Jay Falkner. “Anytime we can be part of the solution to a problem our communities are facing, we are fulfilling our responsibility as a community leader. We feel privileged to be part of this venture.”

CASC has worked collaboratively with area schools to ensure local educators have access to, and are informed of, the clinic. “Once all of our educators have been served, we do plan to open our vaccination clinic up to those who fall in the current distribution phase in Oklahoma,” said Russell. “It will be exciting to serve additional groups in our area.”
