Vaccination clinic Sept. 13 & 14

As a reminder, we will be hosting another vaccination clinic in A. Lincoln Commons on the Springfield campus on the following dates and times:

  • Monday, Sept. 13, 8:30 a.m.-noon and 4-6:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Sept. 14, 8:30 a.m.-noon

If you received your first vaccination dose at the clinics held on Aug. 23 or 24, these clinics are being held so you can get your second dose and be fully vaccinated. In addition, this clinic is open to anyone (employee or student) still wanting to begin their vaccination process and get their first dose. The clinic will have both the Pfizer (two-dose regimen) and the Johnson & Johnson (only one dose required) available.

The walk-through exhibit “Sept. 11, 2001: The Day That Changed the World” will be viewable on the square pillars on the first floor, northwest side of the LLCC Library beginning today through Sept. 30. The poster exhibition was made possible through the efforts of Leslie Ross, librarian/professor.

Told across 14 posters, the exhibition includes archival photographs and images of artifacts from the 9/11 Memorial and Museum’s permanent collection. It explores the consequences of terrorism on individual lives and communities at the local, national and international levels, and encourages critical thinking about the legacies of 9/11.
