After days and days of trying to get appointments for our covid-19 vaccinations my husband finally happened upon a site with openings where he signed us up. What a relief to get started with the first dose of protection from the virus. Even at our age, which qualified us for the shot, a “mass vaccination site” was somewhere we never expected to be. It was an historical day. I want to thank each of those people out there serving our community at the Arlington Airport site and all the other sites as well.
The drive-through method was extremely efficient. The steady stream of cars divided into three lines and we had the shots in our arms within 15 minutes of our arrival at the site. Every check point was well orchestrated. Instructions these people had probably already given hundreds of times that day were given clearly and calmly. We never felt rushed or hurried along. Our questions they must have heard hundreds of times too were answered with patience and respect. The people who administered the shot were pleasant and smiling under their masks.
We felt like we were the only ones there instead of among the masses trying to get a vaccination. It was obvious these people care about us. I commend them for their professionalism and thank them for their kindness as they served outside all day in cold winter weather so we could be protected from a pandemic sized virus.
