Akron Children's Hospital continues work in providing the COVID-19 vaccine to the community

With the support of donors like Signet Jewelers, Akron Children’s was able to provide numerous on-site clinics for our school partners to get their staff vaccinated. The hospital has continued its efforts in making COVID-19 vaccines accessible to the community, and has started traveling to area high schools to offer vaccines to students age 16 and older.


Thanks to the continued support of donors and the community, the 2020 Holiday Tree Festival recently presented a $100,000 donation to Akron Children’s Hospital President and CEO Grace Wakulchik. Read more →
