Welcoming and Comfortable
I was very pleased by the organized vaccination process for patients. I was nervous just thinking about getting the shot, but the staff were so welcoming and made me feel comfortable. I’m thankful for Creighton offering this service to get the COVID-19 vaccine out there.
Friendly Creighton Students Helping at Every Turn
I received my second COVID-19 inoculation at the Rasmussen Center on March 6, and I had such a wonderful experience both times.
The first time, I arrived in the parking lot at 8:30 a.m. The shuttlebus driver pulled up right in front of my car and asked if I would like a ride. I sure would! Then I stood in line for about 20 minutes and was given my inoculation. As soon as I opened the outside door, the same shuttlebus with the outgoing driver welcomed me back and took me to my car immediately. Great experience.
On March 6, I arrived at 7:30 a.m., and I was the only person in the parking lot. At 8 a.m., I walked in, and the workers said they don’t start until 9 a.m. and invited me to sit down. I was the first in line and had a positive experience with friendly Creighton students helping me at every turn. I talked to them and said, ‘I am 75 years old and need you desperately, because I am going to live to after 100 years. And please continue to go into your field, because I need someone caring like you to help me.’
Thank you for the wonderful experience at Creighton’s Rasmussen Center.
True American Spirit
My husband and I were two of the thousands of people who received our first dose of the Pfizer vaccine at Creighton University. We were so impressed by the organization and efficiency of the entire experience. We were so impressed with all the Creighton students and staff. Every person we came in contact with was welcoming, kind, knowledgeable and professional.
The news over the past year has been focused on anger, destruction and fear. Creighton University staff and students demonstrated the true American spirit with acts of kindness to those needing assistance, greeting people as they drove down the street, welcoming people as they lined up and went through the door, and treating people with respect as we stood in line, registered, received the vaccination and waited to register for the second dose. I know Saturday is a time for students to sleep in and relax. Thank you for volunteering to change the course and duration of the pandemic.

Bravo to All
I got my COVID-19 vaccination yesterday at the Creighton University location, and it was one of the best-organized, most superbly executed events I’ve experienced. I was scheduled for 2:50 p.m., and I got the shot at 2:53 pm. Incredibly positive experience, highly knowledgeable staff. Bravo to all who made this possible!

Creighton, Fine Job
I just want to give a big great job shout-out to all the volunteers and staff at the Creighton COVID vaccination clinic on Saturday, Feb. 20. Beforehand my biggest anxiety was not getting the shot but wading through the traffic, and crowded lines at the clinic. However, there were so many volunteers outdoors, in the cold, directing people where to park and walk, that things moved smoothly. The indoor lines moved swiftly. The longest wait was the 15 minutes after getting the shot. All the volunteers knew what they were doing, and everything and everyone worked efficiently. Their work is appreciated.

My wife and I had our first vaccination Feb. 20 at Creighton. We easily found parking in a lot one block from the Rasmussen Center, site of the shots. We arrived at 10:50 for our 11:15 appointment; we were in our car, process completed, by 11:25.
The process highlight, other than the vaccine, was the student volunteers. We were pleasantly greeted by each as we passed through the line, and were frequently asked if we had questions. Their pleasant exchanges and confidence made this much anticipated process calming and efficient.
We are proud of Creighton University, truly an integral member of the Omaha community.
