Vaccination Efforts in a Rural Community

"Haywood County is a rural community in Western North Carolina, and by becoming certified to administer shots, these techs will be able to provide much needed assistance for vaccination efforts in our community."

October 1, 2021

“I am an educator at Haywood Community College. I would like to recognize the eight ambitious pharmacy techs that participated in our joint program with The University of North Carolina Chapel Hill: "Pharmacy Technicians and Vaccinations: An Advanced Training Program," and became immunization and CPR certified. Haywood County is a rural community in Western North Carolina, and by becoming certified to administer shots, these techs will be able to provide much needed assistance for vaccination efforts in our community.”
