The Central University of the Caribbean (UCC) will begin tomorrow to vaccinate health professionals against COVID-19 in coordination with the College of Surgeons and the College of Dental Surgeons of Puerto Rico.
The UCC was certified as a COVID-19 vaccination center to support the efforts of the Department of Health and the National Guard.
To offer the service, appointments will be scheduled in coordination with various colleges and associations of health professionals, explained the president of the university, Waleska Crespo Rivera. Health professionals interested in getting vaccinated at the UCC can request an appointment on the page: [email protected].
Upon arrival at the vaccination center, you must bring: evidence of registration or professional license issued by the Board of Health Professionals, a copy of photo identification and a copy of the medical plan card.
Students from the School of Medicine, as well as from the Chiropractic Program, participate in the UCC vaccination clinic, along with volunteer faculty and doctors.
Before offering the service, they were trained in the process of administering the COVID-19 vaccine.
“At UCC we have a history of serving the community that now expands with the beginning of this effort to provide greater access to vaccination for health professionals. We have placed our facilities, faculty, employees, and support personnel at the disposal of the Department of Health and the Puerto Rico National Guard, as we have done in other instances of collaboration. I have no doubts that this experience will enrich the academic formation of our students, but rather that it will strengthen our ties of collaboration with other sectors of health and the community ”, declared Crespo Rivera.
