On Saturday, March 6, the second vaccine clinic was held at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Iowa (BGCCI) Suzie Glazer Burt Club located on the Drake University campus.
BGCCI staff were given the opportunity to join around 1,000 other Central Iowa educators to receive their COVID-19 vaccinations through the partnership formed by BGCCI, Hy-Vee, the Polk County Health Department and Drake.
BGCCI staff have remained essential workers throughout the pandemic, providing a safe place for kids in the community to conduct remote learning who might not have the resources, technology or space at home to be able to learn. In the last year, BGCCI has expanded their reach to serve kids at more than 49 Central Iowa schools.
