ARDMORE, Okla. (KXII) - The Carter County Health Department held a third Ardmore Convention Center vaccine event Tuesday.

This time, student nurses from Southern Tech helped to give out the shots.

Most patients were sixty-five and older.

Nursing student K’Dreion Freeman said everyone she gave a shot to was excited.

Though the pandemic’s been taxing for healthcare workers, Freeman said her experiences have made her confident that she’s entering the right career.

“Being a nurse, you’re putting yourself in the frontline of whatever’s around,” Freeman said. “It could be swine flu, it could be COVID, it could be anything. But at that point in time, its not longer about you. You’re putting someone else’s life before yours.”

The next Carter County vaccination event will be next Tuesday. Register at vaccinate.oklahoma.gov.
