Lone Star College partnered with the Harris County Public Health Department to host a COVID vaccine delivery site at its LSC-CyFair campus. The vaccinations took place last week.

“Lone Star College has worked with various governmental organizations and private businesses since this pandemic began to aid in the fight against this terrible epidemic,” said Stephen C. Head, Ph.D., LSC chancellor. “We were proud to provide the resources of Lone Star College-CyFair to our community.”

Patients needed to make an appointment to be vaccinated and were allowed in one hour before their scheduled time and not more than one hour after their scheduled time. There were eight lanes for vaccinations staffed by a team of health care professionals.

In addition to providing a site for vaccinations, LSC has also loaned ventilators to assist health care workers at Houston Methodist-Baytown, CHI St. Luke’s-Woodlands and HCA Houston Health Care-Kingwood.
