LYNCHBURG, Va. – Liberty University healthcare students are serving on the frontlines during this pandemic.

Nursing and medical students have been helping at community clinics for COVID-19 vaccinations: assisting patients with filling out forms, distributing CDC information, and monitoring patients for any post-COVID-19 allergic reactions.

University officials say the school’s clinical students are at a higher risk of exposure to the virus. They are advocating that students be prioritized for the first wave of vaccines.
