Registered Nursing students, John Failmezger, from left, Vickie Clarke, Laura Weaver and Melissa Jefferson were among the participants who partnered with Sentara Healthcare to administer “drive up” flu shots to the community.

Students in the Camp Community College Registered Nursing (RN) Class of 2020 helped Sentara Healthcare provide the community with free flu shots on Oct. 12.

Participants were able to drive up and receive the shots without getting out of their vehicles at Sentara Obici Hospital in southern Suffolk, Sentara St. Luke’s in Carrollton and Sentara Belleharbour in northern Suffolk. Members of the RN class were stationed at each location with instructors 

“This partnership allowed the students to give multiple injections, teach others about the flu and the importance of prevention, as well as be visible in the community,” said Camp Associate Professor of Nursing Trudy Kuehn. She serves as lead instructor of the Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) Program. “At three sites, more than 600 flu shots were provided to the community.”
