On December 21 and 22 of 2020, the AUHS School of Pharmacy supported and collaborated with College Medical Center (CMC) of Long Beach for administering the Pfizer-BioN-Tech COVID vaccine to their front-line workers and other CMC personnel. During those two days, the vaccine team, which consisted of nurses, pharmacists, and pharmacy students, administered over 125 vaccinations. Among the pharmacy students were AUHS’ very own Joshua Haywood (c/o 2022), Leena Mazumdar (c/o 2022), and Leelit Minasyan (c/o 2022). With the School of Pharmacy faculty supervising and monitoring their practice, the students were able to receive first-hand experience in providing vaccine services. The ongoing global pandemic has generated many challenges for everyone. However, with the recent distribution and implementation of the vaccine, there is steady progress. The AUHS School of Pharmacy faculty and students feel very honored and proud to represent their profession and to provide some of the first vaccinations against the coronavirus.
