Parking garage used for drive-thru vaccinations
Saint Leo University hosted the first COVID-19 vaccine distribution in East Pasco County on Friday, January 15, at its campus in St. Leo.
The Florida Department of Health in Pasco County (DOH-Pasco) distributed the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to those 65 and older. Saint Leo’s parking garage was used for the drive-thru vaccination and area residents said they appreciated the smoothness of the process.
“Saint Leo University was proud to help our county health department in serving the residents of East Pasco County, providing quick access to a potentially life-saving vaccine,” said University President Jeffrey D. Senese. “Community’ is one of Saint Leo’s core values, and we thoroughly embrace the idea of helping others. We welcome our Pasco County neighbors and were glad to offer this opportunity to those 65 and older at this time.”
The university will be a site for future DOH-Pasco distributions of the COVID vaccine. The DOH-Pasco will release information on when the vaccine will be distributed.
The agency contracted with CDR Maguire: Health & Medical (CDR Maguire) to provide vaccination scheduling through its CDR HealthPro™ patient portal software.
