C-GCC Offering Scholarship to Vaccinated Students

Written By Editor on 7/22/21 | 7/22/21

College to Host COVID-19 Student Vaccination Clinic Wednesday, August 4

HUDSON, N.Y. – In an effort to increase its number of vaccinated students, Columbia-Greene Community College is sponsoring a Student Vaccination Clinic on Wednesday, August 4, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., offering some key incentives as part of the event.  

Per New York State guidance, and pending approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the State University of New York (SUNY) will require all in-person students to be vaccinated against COVID-19 before returning to campus this fall.  

To this end, any C-GCC student who receives a vaccine at the August 4 clinic will receive a $10 gift card to Stewarts Shops, and be entered in a grand-prize drawing for free tuition for the Fall 2021 semester: the equivalent of nine credits for part-time students or 12 for full-time students.  

Students who’ve already been vaccinated may also enter the drawing, by showing proof of their vaccination record to the College’s Director of Health Services. 

C-GCC President Carlee R. Drummer, Ph.D., said the clinic is the latest move by the College to ensure the overall health and safety of its students, while at the same time maintaining its commitment to a high-quality education for all. 

“The College is proud to partner with Columbia and Greene counties by offering the COVID-19 vaccine to any registered student who seeks one, and looks forward to re-opening its doors to students and the community at-large in the fall,” she said, noting that C-GCC is a Department of Education COVID-19 College Challenge member institution, having pledged to spear-head efforts to vaccinate students through education, leadership, and vaccine-delivery. 

 “The CoGreene spirit of resolve and cooperation kept us moving forward during these unprecedented times, and ultimately, will keep us moving forward – together.”  

SUNY Chancellor Jim Malatras echoed Drummer’s sentiment, adding that the system’s revamped COVID-19 policy revives many elements of the traditional college experience that were lost in the last 16 months. 

“One year ago, the future of the immersive, on-campus learning experience we love was in grave jeopardy with no resolution in sight,” he said. “Over the last two months, I’ve watched students cross the commencement stage beaming with pride, joy, and optimism. There’s a palpable energy in the air—a real sense of hope and healing. Let’s not go back.”  

Vaccines for C-GCC students will be administered in the Professional Academic Center (PAC) at C-GCC on August 4 between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
