Vaccination process was smooth, uplifting
To the Editor:
Today, January 21, I received my first Covid-19 vaccine shot administered by the Haywood County Health Department at the Smoky Mountain Event Center. Things couldn’t haven’t gone more smoothly.
I arrived at noon — my assigned time — and the process was completed by 12:30 p.m. This included registration, receiving the vaccine, and a 15-minute waiting time. Processing was quick, thorough, and efficient. All personnel were courteous, well-informed, and helpful. The Health Department and the people working at this site are to be congratulated. After the difficult time we have borne over the past several months, my experience was positive, uplifting, and encouraging.
My hat is off to the Health Department and, especially, to the men and women staffing the vaccination center. Despite a cold and rainy day, they were cheerful, efficient, and helpful. I offer my sincere appreciation and thanks. I encourage everyone to be vaccinated so we can return to a normal life as soon as safely possible.
