EAST LANSING — In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been a lot of negative issues that have shaken our globe, but ordinary people have also banded together and worked to bring a sense of normalcy to our daily lives. An example of this is the vaccination efforts from the Lansing Urgent Care staff members who have worked to administer vaccines at the COVID drive-thru clinic located at the MSU pavilion.

The Urgent Care staff members have volunteered their time to help with the vaccinations since December, logging around 2775 hours of volunteer work between December and February. The crew expects to add 260 more hours by the end of March. 

“We are reminded of how amazing our staff is on a daily basis at the LUC clinics, but they have gone above and beyond volunteering at the vaccination drive-thru.” Lansing Urgent Care’s owner and Medical Director Dr. Terry Matthews said. “We are all honored to be involved with safeguarding our community during this worldwide pandemic and will continue to do whatever we can to help.”

Lansing Urgent Care has also expanded their efforts in the recent weeks. The clinics now offer COVID-19 testing (Rapid, PCR, antibody) at all eight of their locations within the Greater Lansing area.
