I cannot say enough positive things about how well coordinated and smooth the process was. To a person, everyone I encountered in my approximately 20-minute drive-through was efficient and extremely friendly. The first volunteer I encountered after my “jab” actually thanked me for being there. Who knows how many hours they were there in the cold and sometimes rain, processing reportedly 1,000 recipients throughout the day, and yet every one of them was as pleasant as could be.
I don’t know how many staff and volunteers there were in total, but it seemed like many dozens — and everything went like clockwork. I am so appreciative to every single person who had any part in planning and implementing the vaccinations. From the first volunteer who checked my ID, to the EMS personnel who were standing by at the “end of the line” to respond if anyone had an adverse reaction, to the many in between: thank you for your service and for helping to make Haywood County safer!
