In Photos: BGSU's COVID-19 vaccination clinics
In partnership with the Wood County Health Department, Bowling Green State University is hosting a series of large-scale COVID-19 vaccination clinics at the Perry Field House on the Bowling Green campus.
The first clinic took place Tuesday, March 30, with thousands of vaccines administered.
"This is a significant moment for BGSU and our community," said BGSU Chief Health Officer Ben Batey. "Vaccines are proven to be safe and the most effective tool in lowering case numbers. With every vaccination, we are one step closer to being on the other side of the global pandemic.
We are pleased to partner with the Wood County Health Department for this important public health initiative. Because of the size of BGSU's facilities, we are able to get thousands of people vaccinated daily, quickly and efficiently."
Several clinics are scheduled at the Perry Field House for March and April. The free vaccination clinics are open to the public.
