Appalachian State held its first COVID-19 vaccination clinics last week.

Chancellor Dr Sheri Everts said the two-day clinic administered 680 vaccinations to staff, faculty and students and eligible community members, the full supply the university was allotted.

The clinic was set up and staffed by university employees from Student Health Service, Emergency Management and the Holmes Center, as well as re-assigned Campus Dining staff members.

Faculty and students from the Department of Nursing were also involved in staffing the center.

The university conducted 1,485 COVID-19 tests last week with 21 positive results, or 1.4 percent positivity rate, which remains well below the state average, last reported as 3.7 percent.
