ABC News: Student-organized COVID-19 vaccine clinic at Colorado high school gives out over 800 shots

Story excerpt:

"A group of students at a Colorado high school took matters into their own hands to curb the spread of COVID-19 in their community, turning their school into a vaccine clinic and administering over 800 shots to the public.

Josh Alvarez and Yeabsera Fitsum, students at Rangeview High School in Aurora, wanted to get their friends and family vaccinated and deliberated ideas on how to help during a meeting at the school's Social Justice club.

Club adviser and teacher Stephanie Walsh reached out to local health officials to find a way to make that dream a reality.

'Here in Colorado, we have a movement called 'equity clinics' for communities of color or [communities that are] underserved. So we fell under that umbrella, our school and our community. We just filled out an application and the ball just kept rolling from there,' Walsh told ABC News."
