City College campus hosts, Dignity Health as vaccination site


City College transformed into a COVID-19 vaccination site in partnership with Dignity Health Feb. 13 and will do so again March 13. This time providing follow-up shots for those who already received their first dose.

Vice President of Administrative Services Carrie Bray said the site was open for individuals aged 65 and older, with Dignity Health managing vaccine registration. 

“It’s not just for their members,” said Bray. “It’s a community effort.” 

According to Bray, the decision to turn City College into a vaccination site was a joint effort between Los Rios Chancellor Brian King and Dignity Health. According to Bray, City College’s campus was a good fit for the targeted demographic.

“They really liked the layout we had,” said Bray. “Where we’re located, too, because they were trying to get the low-income community members. It was a good fit that way also.” 

Vaccinations were initially planned Feb. 13 in City College’s north parking lot, but rain caused administrators to move into the parking garage’s bottom level, Bray said. 

“There’s room for a lot of cars to get in line there,” she said. “We’re also trying to be very conscientious of our neighbors. We don’t want cars coming in off 12th Avenue [We’re] trying to make it the least disruptive for the college.”

According to Public Information Officer Kaitlyn Collignon, having readily available access to Wi-Fi and power on campus were important factors in Dignity Health’s decision to use City College as a vaccination site.

“There’s a lot that the location had that seemed like it was going to serve their needs,” said Collignon. “All around, it was what they were looking for to be able to serve the community.” 

Bray said City College’s operations staff worked with Dignity Health to set up the vaccination site, provided tables, internet access, access to electricity and more. Los Rios Police Department was also present to place cones for vehicle lanes and ensure things ran smoothly. 

“Our operations staff—they do an amazing job with these events,” said Bray. “They’re so well organized. It was definitely a benefit for Dignity Health.

“We are very happy to be able to be a site and help the community out. It was a nice thing that we were able to work with them on.”
