Vaccines remain the most powerful tool in fighting the COVID-19 resurgence and emergence of variants. Hence, the three-day event was declared by the Philippine government as the National COVID-19 Vaccination Days. 

Faculty members from the Department of Nursing, Maria Lourdeni A. Ruaya, Alex Magalona and Department of Pharmacy’s Yolanda C. Deliman along with 38 fourth-year nursing students actively participated in the National Vaccination Program. 

The Carolianian team was assigned to help with the registration, orientation, screening, vaccination proper, and post-vaccination monitoring. 

This historic vaccination program delivered 7.6 million jabs nationwide. It also gave USC’s nursing students the ability to demonstrate their skills despite the challenges of training and studying in the midst of a pandemic.
