Rotz Pharmacy and Lord Fairfax Community College are partnering together again, this time with a $25,000 donation to the LFCC Educational Fund.

The money will be used to create a scholarship that will be available to students.

Rotz and LFCC recently came together to provide over 5,000 COVID-19 vaccinations at the Middletown Campus.

Those clinics also provided nursing students hands-on learning experiences.

Building on this prior relationship motivated the pharmacy to want to give back.

Rotz Pharmacy and Lord Fairfax Community College teamed up to vaccinate over 800 people at a clinic at LFCC’s Middletown Campus Friday Mar. 5.

Inclement weather prevented the Rotz Pharmacy from administering the vaccine at the pharmacy.

Jason Rotz contacted the school to let them know he had a surplus of doses.

The school was happy to open it’s facility as a makeshift clinic.

Over 70 volunteers, school staff and nursing students put together a flawless operation.

Those who had the first dose on Fri. are scheduled to return to the school for their second dose on Fri. Apr. 2.

LFCC’s Facebook page will have updates on Fri.’s clinic and the possibility of a clinic in the future.
