The UT Health San Antonio School of Nursing led efforts to create and run the COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic on campus. The state-approved vaccine hub opened in December 2020 and initially vaccinated frontline health care workers and first responders. Next, the clinic was dedicated to vaccinating the area’s most vulnerable residents. Staff, faculty and students from across the university contributed to making the vaccine hub a seamless, well-organized community service. Those pictured represent the many who worked diligently daily to stop the spread of the deadly disease.
