Ingles Markets, Inc. and Clemson University have teamed up to provide COVID-19 vaccine appointments for eligible employees at participating locations.
Through a survey distributed to all Clemson employees and others who work on campus, the University identified more than 1,000 individuals who were both eligible for vaccination and interested in securing an appointment. Those employees have been contacted directly by Ingles Pharmacies closest to their home to set up an appointment.
“We’re happy to partner with Clemson to help eligible employees access available vaccination appointments, as we try to vaccinate as many members of our community as possible,” said Ron Freeman, Ingles Chief Financial Officer. “We know every vaccine we administer helps our community as we move closer to herd immunity, and even helps protect those who choose not to receive the vaccine.”
“We appreciate the opportunity to build upon the longstanding relationship between Ingles Markets and Clemson to help our eligible employees access vaccination appointments,” said Angie Leidinger, Clemson Vice President for External Affairs. “Clemson’s commitment to prioritize the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and community has been a constant through the pandemic, and will continue to be our focus moving forward. We are appreciative of Ingles providing these opportunities to our employees and will continue to look for every opportunity available to assist our Clemson community.”
Clemson and Ingles will continue to explore opportunities for vaccine coordination as statewide eligibility guidance evolves.
