Glenville State College Baseball Team members assist with COVID-19 vaccination clinics

GLENVILLE, WV – Members of the Glenville State College Pioneer Baseball Team have recently been pitching in with ongoing efforts to distribute COVID-19 vaccinations in Gilmer County.

The local vaccine clinics have been taking place at the Sue Morris Sports Complex. The Complex is also the facility used by the Pioneers for their practices and competitions.

“I am very proud of my guys. I ask a lot of them and they show up every time. The weather has been cold for the clinics but they stick with it because they know how important this is for our community and state,” said Head Coach Jimmy Mullins.

“We are blessed to have great young men here in our program; I love being with them every day,” he added.

The clinics have been organized at the state level by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources and the West Virginia Joint Interagency Task Force for COVID-19 Vaccines. Locally, the Gilmer County Office of Emergency Management and the Gilmer County Health Department have been managing the operation of the clinics, which are utilizing existing vaccine waitlists.

Mountain State residents can continue to pre-register for a COVID-19 vaccine through the West Virginia COVID-19 Vaccine Registration System at
