Community Engagement
Pharmacy students play a crucial role in vaccine efforts

Pacific partnered with San Joaquin County Public Health Services to offer COVID-19 vaccine clinics on the Stockton campus. The Operation Immunization health care outreach committee has been leading these efforts. The commitment of doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) students to organize and host the clinics has been key to the success of the clinics.

Special thanks to the volunteer students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members for their time and commitment.
