Midwestern passes 16,000 COVID vaccine doses administered

Posted

Midwestern University’s Glendale Campus Vaccination Center at 19555 N. 59th Ave., Glendale, has administered more than 16,000 vaccination doses as part of Operation Hope, Midwestern’s community contribution to the global fight against COVID-19.

Operation Hope is a cross-campus community effort to provide vaccinations for the Midwestern community of students, faculty, staff and their families; university clinic patients; and local businesses and organizations, in conjunction with state health departments of Maricopa County and DuPage County, Illinois.

The university received approvals to operate its indoor points of distribution for COVID-19 vaccines in January.

More than 75% of Midwestern’s community of faculty, staff and students are now fully vaccinated – defined by being two weeks past the final dose of a single-shot or two-dose COVID-19 vaccine.

The convenience and availability of Operation Hope vaccines has helped the university reach this milestone quickly, which has resulted in a steady decrease in reported COVID cases, officials said.

Operation Hope Vaccination Centers remain open at Midwestern University’s clinical campuses in Glendale and Downers Grove, Illinois.
