Thankful for dad’s vaccination process

To the Editor:

My 89-year-old dad got his first COVID vaccine this afternoon.

He was extremely impressed with how well he was cared for by the EMS and other staffers. The whole process held at the Haywood County Fairgrounds was so very organized and smooth. Thanks for everything that went into organizing and running the truly amazing event!
