Veterans, as well as spouses and caregivers of veterans, had the opportunity to receive a COVID-19 vaccine April 30 on the Pew Grand Rapids Campus.

The walk-in clinic, sponsored by the Battle Creek VA Medical Center, was held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Seward Parking Lot off Fulton Street.

Brian Pegouske, public affairs officer with the VA medical center, said, “We appreciate GVSU for the space and for allowing us to bring the vaccine out to the community and closer to where veterans live, work and attend school.”
