UPDATE: This event was canceled due to low enrollment.

Clark College, WPEA and CCAHE are holding a vaccination clinic on Wednesday, September 1 from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Clark College in the STEM Building. Sign up for an appointment here.  

Rite Aid will be providing the first dose of the Moderna Covid-19 Vaccine.  

On August 18, Governor Inslee announced a mandate requiring all educators, including higher education workers, be vaccinated against COVID-19 by October 18, 2021. This mandate applies to all higher education workers whether working remotely or in person, and whether part-time temporary or full-time. It also applies to student workers.  

In order to be fully vaccinated, people need to receive two doses of the Moderna vaccine spaced weeks apart. The second-dose vaccination clinic will be held on Wednesday, September 29 from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  

This event is free. You do not have to pay for the vaccine. The event is being held for Clark College employees and students, but other members of the public are welcome to make appointments as well.

WPEA Food Drive

As in the past, WPEA is collecting food for our local food banks this September. You may see white paper collection bags, which were placed on chairs during Opening Day, at various locations in department offices. Once filled with donations, these bags should be returned to any WPEA shop steward before September 30.  They can also be returned during the annual WPEA barbecue on September 19 in front of Scarpelli Hall. Thank you all for your donations!
