Parlier High School plans to build new medical facility on campus

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) — Parlier High School is building a new addition on their campus that will bring much more than added classroom space to the high school.

Instructor Cynthia Acevedo says she remembers when Parlier High Schools Medical Pathways Program was just starting.

“The beginning of the program was small cohorts, we only had a couple of students the very first year,” said Acevedo.

Now with 200 students participating in the program, the need for more space is greater than ever before.

“The space is very limited,” said Medical Assistant Instructor Nichole Gallagher. “As you can see, we’ve got to do our lecture, plus all of our skills in this one small area.”

Thanks to a state grant, Parlier High School is building a $3.2 million medical facility on its campus for students eager to pursue the medical field.

“We always talk about a legacy to leave behind,” said

Georgia Medical Facility Loses Appeal After Vaccinating Teachers Over Others

The Medical Center of Elberton in Georgia reportedly lost its appeal to administer COVID-19 vaccines as the state’s department of health issued a suspension.

The move followed the medical center’s decision to vaccinate teachers who have to return to in-person learning, even though it went against state guidelines.

Brooke McDowell, the medical center’s practice administrator, told local Georgia television station WSB-TV on Friday that they “plan to appeal.”

However, the medical center’s appeal was denied and a six-month suspension from new vaccines will be enforced until July 27, according to the news outlet.

The center can provide patients with the vaccine doses already in their inventory, but they will not receive any new doses until the suspension is lifted.

“Currently, the supply of COVID-19 vaccines is very limited,” the Georgia Department of Health said in a Friday statement addressing the suspension.
