GBC Volunteers Assist in NNRH Flu Shot Event

GBC Volunteers Assist in NNRH Flu Shot Event graphic.Recently, volunteers from Great Basin College assisted with Northern Nevada Regional Hospital's Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinic, and by any measure it was a huge success!

The Flu Shot Clinic took place on Saturday, October 17 at NNRH's campus in Elko.

In just 4 hours, 1,247 flu shots were administered and nearly a ton, 1,905 pounds, of canned food was collected from donations made by the community. All the food collected was distributed to local food banks.

The clinic could not have been possible without an army of volunteers. NNRH employees, their friends and family, the NNRH Auxiliary, along with all the community partners, gave up their Saturday morning to make our community healthier.

NNRH gave a shout out to all the organizations who collaborated to make the clinic happen including:

  • Great Basin College Nursing Program
  • Merleen Grover and the State of Nevada Flu POD Program
  • Friends In Service Helping (FISH)
  • Ruby Mountain Resource Center
  • Battle Born Veterans Club at GBC

A staff member of NNRH commented, "Days like Saturday remind us how much we can accomplish when we all come together for the good of our community. So, thank you to everyone who made this clinic such a success. You all are the best!"
