GCU providing volunteers for vaccine distribution

GCU News Bureau

In its continuing efforts to be part of the solution against COVID-19, Grand Canyon University is recruiting faculty, staff and student volunteers to assist Banner Health in administering the vaccine.

The vaccine will be administered daily to first responders and health care workers beginning Thursday, Dec. 17, at the Arizona State Fairgrounds and at the Banner facility at 3838 N. Campbell Ave. in Tucson.

An additional Phoenix-area site, the Banner Del Webb Medical Center in Sun City West, will begin vaccinations on Monday, Dec. 21. All three sites will be open daily except on Christmas and New Year’s Day.

Volunteers will fill clinical and non-clinical roles and work from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

GCU’s involvement resulted from the connections Emergency Preparedness Manager Marcus Castle has from his days as a planning supervisor for the Maricopa County Department of Public Health.

“GCU is continuing its commitment,” he said. “We were able to stay open throughout the entire fall semester. We’re one of the few universities that still had students on campus after Thanksgiving. We’re going to work through and live in the COVID environment in preparation for the spring semester.”
