    Thanks - that's nice to hear. I'm glad it went well for you both. I'm hoping for the same.

    My husband is a firefighter/paramedic in Pierce County WA . There was a mass drive through vaccination at one of the fire stations in his district. He was one of the ones working at it. Not only did I go there to get my vaccination ( J&J) but he was the one who gave me mine. And it was his birthday, . So we met up later and went out to dinner after the event was done . Had a wonder sushi dinner too

    Not even. Our daily schedule is 900 with 13 vaccinators.

    A mass event IMO is over 3000...

    Gardnr, thanks for working at this vaccination project--that is 4 times the size of my town, so it sounds like a mass event to me, haha. I think it is wonderful that you are helping so many people get vaccinated. I wish we had that kind of accessibility and availability here. We truly don't, and people have to work so hard to find a place where they can get a vaccine, and many people just give up.

    So thank you for making it possible for people to get the vaccines. I wish our state was doing this in places where people cannot find vaccines.

    I heard from a patient last week, that the National Guard is set up in Northern Idaho to give vaccinations to all those rural life dwellers. It is a 6 month assignment and the "clinic" moves from small town to small town. (I have not verified but can't imagine she made up the story).

    Perhaps a letter writing campaign to your Governor from small town dwellers? It is your Governor's responsibility to assure vaccines are accessible.
