WORCESTER, MA— April 5, 2021— Quinsigamond Community College is taking to the airways to deliver an important message to students and the community-at-large. Get vaccinated.

The College has put together an informational website, with a series of public service videos from QCC students in English, Spanish, Arabic, Russian, Vietnamese, and Albanian. The videos are designed to engage, inform and encourage people to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

In addition to the videos, the website includes information about the vaccine in English, Spanish and Vietnamese, as well as vaccination locations and eligibility phases.

“These public service announcements are designed to help increase the dissemination of accurate information about the COVID-19 vaccines. Let’s all get vaccinated as soon as we are eligible. The vaccines have been shown to be highly effective, and the faster we get vaccinated when eligible, the more we can begin to do some of the things we did prior to the pandemic,” said President Luis. G. Pedraja, Ph.D.
