PITTSFIELD, Mass. — After six months of work delivering the COVID-19 vaccine to tens of thousands of residents of Berkshire County and beyond, the Berkshire Vaccine Collaborative was given a much-needed break. 
 
On Thursday, Aug. 5, Berkshire Community College welcomed volunteers, staff and supporters of the collaborative at a celebration held at the Paterson Field House on BCC's campus. 
 
The celebration honored those who administered vaccines at BCC, St. Elizabeth of Hungary Parish Center in North Adams, and the W.E.B. Dubois Middle School in Great Barrington, which often handled hundreds and even thousands of vaccinations per day in the initial phases of the vaccine rollout. 
 
"We're so proud to have worked with the Berkshire Vaccine Collaborative in this critical public health initiative," said Andrea Wadsworth, BCC Vice President of Administration and Finance. "We could not have done it without the assistance of the countless people who stepped up to help, often volunteering to work long hours and weekends to get as many people vaccinated as possible. This was a small way of saying thank you." 
 
The event was sponsored by Berkshire Bank, with additional support from Greylock Federal Credit Union. 
 
The Berkshire Vaccination Collaborative is a partnership of the Berkshire County Boards of Health Association, Berkshire Health Systems, Community Health Programs, Northern Berkshire EMS, and public health nurses. For more information, visit www.getvaccinatedberkshires.org
